Abstract: In contrast with some other factors that relate SI quantities, those involving amount of substance vary by entity in their magnetude and their uncertainty. The mole-to-gram factor, called molar mass, like the mole itself, has to be defined by chemical formula, at times also by isotopic composition of constituent elements of a compound in a sample. Chemistry has long dependend greatly on the molar-mass values of the chemical elements in their natural terrestrial occurrence. The determination of these data has called for great skill in chemical analytical methods until isotope-ratio mass spectrometry provided values with smaller uncertainties. The best current knowledge of the set of molar-mass values is published biennally by IUPAC.
