The short answer is "no".......


Pure (100%) acetone and sodium metal do not react. However, acetone often has water as an impurity, and as is well known, water and sodium metal react together vigorously. But this is a reaction between water and sodium, not acetone and sodium. If the acetone 100% pure and dry there will not be a reaction.
