What colors and how will you apply the current?

Look in Electronics, I think they have diodes that do the same thing ;)

im looking for red green and blue, and as for the current it will most likely be direct current.
and it has to be a chemical.

Do you know of any matter that we interact with that isn't a chemical? Will this chemical be a gas and will you apply current across electrodes separated by this gas? Will it be a solid and will you apply current in the form of an electron stream from an ion gun? Will the substance need to be electrically conductive and exhibit electroluminescence as a solid?

im going to use the chemicals in small glass-like cells.
the electric current will be supplied through wires.
it needs to be electrically conductive when diluted in the glass-like cells.
and it needs to exhibit electroluminescence as solid and liquid.
