    What legally obtainable, and relatively safe, liquids have the highest
    available dielectric constant?

    Distilled water is about 80 - but it is pretty temperature dependant,
    as are most liquids, I believe. I don't think there is much that goes
    a great deal higher - certainly not safe stuff.

    Water. Sea water is about 80.

    Actually, sea (salt) water is closer to 81. Water is about 80.

    The problem with salt water is that it conducts like crazy; that makes
    for a bit of a problem in most applications where dielectric constant
    is a major factor.
