I need to create an electrically conductive liquid that will not
solidify nor boil over a temperature range of -40 deg C to 105 deg C.
I started out with propylene glycol to achieve the temperature range,
and than have tried various materials to make an electrically
conductive solution. I first tried powdered metals, however even when
turning the material into a paste, the conductivity was still around
200kohms/inch. I know the units should be something else, but its been
20+ years since college chem, and its been unsed since then.
Realisitically, it would seem that the solution needs to have a mix of
water and some conductive salts in order to lower the conductivity to
the 1 ohm/inch requirement that I need. Are their any resources that
you guys can point me at to get started.
