A monitor for hydrocarbons in water is described. An unclad optical fiber, inserted through a stainless steel capillary, is coated with an organophilic compound such as octadecyltrichlorosilane. The input radiation is at 632.8 nm from a low-power laser. With the proper organophilic coating, the use of an optical fiber with a suitable detector will be promising for detection and measurement of such contaminants and possibly, for specific types.
