Solid sodium methoxide reacts easily with water to form strong sodium hydroxide and methanol. Methanol is a highly flammable liquid that is volatile and toxic. In the process of transportation, if the packing is not well sealed, the solid sodium methoxide product is easy to deteriorate when exposed to water or moist air, and the resulting methanol will cause toxicity to the transporters.
