This study tests the hypothesis that the organic molecules, 2,9-dimethyl-1,4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline Bathocuproine BCP and 2,9-dimethyl-4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthrolinedisulfonic acid Bathocuproinedisulfonic acid BCS are reliable chemicals to use in developing a standard analysis procedure BCS and for testing an optical fiber sensor BCP capable of measuring copperI in seawater. Results show the BCS chemical provides a quick and relatively easy way to determine the concentration of copperI in marine and estuarine waters. Bathocuproine BCP, once attached to optical fibers, allows for a rapid electronic measurement to quickly detect the amount and pattern of copperI released into the marine environment.
