"dkg" is not an accepted unit symbol in the modern metric system (The SI).

If it is meant to be decikilogram, compound prefixes are not permitted. If it is meant to be dekagram, the proper symbol for the deka- prefix is da, so dekagram would be dag.

In both cases, those rules have been in place at least since 1960, so "dkg" has been meaningless for at least some 48 years.

Moles/L = (5g/L)(1mole/12200g) = 0.0004098moles/L
1 millimole = 0.001 mole
(0.0004098moles/L)(1 millimole/0.001mole) =
0.4098 mmol/L
