Liquids and Electricity

  1. Dec 15, 2015 #1
    Hello everyone,
    I am currently working on a project to design a more efficient method of electricity production in the nuclear industry. I haven't been able to find anything online (and chemistry isn't exactly my strong suit most of the time), but I wanted to know if anyone knows of a liquid or liquids that, when heated, will give up valence electrons, and another liquid or liquids that will take in these free electrons when heated? I probably am not using the correct terms for certain things, so I apologize for that. If anyone knows of liquids like these or articles pertaining to this, I would greatly appreciate any input. Thank you guys!
