I know that batteries run off redox reactions. Therefore can I choose an arbitrary reduction reaction in one half cell, an arbitrary oxidation reaction that will happen at room temperature for the other cell, connect the half cells with the salt bridge, and just close the circuit extracting current? Also can disproportion reactions like cannizzaro be used to create a battery?
