Abstract. A method is proposed for measuring small concentrations of oil products in water. The device represents a plate of a dielectric material that is in contact with an anisotropically conducting film on one side and adjoins a medium under test on the other side. It is shown that the application of an anisotropically conducting film in the device allows to adjust the device by a simple rotation of the anisotropy axis of the film, thus providing the maximum sensitivity to small concentrations of oil in the medium.

Key words: dielectric properties, anistropically conducting film, measurement of small concentrations of oil in water.
