Using a U-shaped glass tube where one arm contains bi-distilled water and the other arm ethyl alcohol (91%)  separated by a platinum foil, the generated voltage    across two platinum electrodes and a DC power of the order of nanoW were measured. The generated voltage lasted for many hours.   The magnitude of both the voltage and power generated increased with vigorous shaking of the alcohol.

Considering the absence of any significant quantity of ionic solutes in this system, voltage generation from two different polar liquids separated by a metal separator is an interesting phenomenon in the context of classical electrochemistry and seems to imply some kind of non-ionic conduction. A qualitative explanation of this phenomenon has been offered here based on the principle of Quantum Electrodynamics.
