Dear student,
 
refractive index=Speed of light in vacuum / speed of light in medium.
Since the density of a liquid usually decreases with temperature, the speed of light in a liquid will normally increase as the temperature increases. Thus, the index of refraction normally decreases as the temperature increases for a liquid.
 
Thanks,
