Alkali metals are strongly reduced in nature; therefore, they cannot be extracted by reducing their oxides. And due to their strong electropositive alkali metals can not be replaced by any other elements from its salt. Due to this reason Alkali metals are prepared by electrolysis of their fused chlorides.
