    To convert between grams and moles, you need the molar mass. The molar mass of cortisol (per Wikipedia) is 362.46 g/mol.

    0.5 mcg/mL is also 0.5 mg/L
    0.5 mg/L x 1 mol/362.46 g = 0.001379 mmol/L = 1379 nmol/L (should probably be rounded to 1380 or 1400, based on apparent precision of initial value)

      i tried to do it myself and after an hour of looking stuff up came to the same answer. it didn't look right to me, i was sure i had done something wrong. since i'd never done anything like this before, it seemed very likely. i'm glad to see that i didn't.

      thank you, that was really very helpful .
