  Units: L
The liter was originally defined to be the volume occupied by a kilogram of water, and the gram as the mass of a cubic centimeter of water.
However, the SI states that the liter "may be employed as a special name for the cubic decimeter." Throughout this dictionary, the liter is used as a name for exactly 1 cubic decimeter, 1000 cubic centimeters, or 0.001 cubic meter.
In its renewed guise as the cubic decimeter, the liter is approximately 61.023 744 cubic inches.

  Liter - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Liters are most commonly used for items measured by the capacity or size of their container (such as fluids and berries), whereas cubic meters (and derived units) are most commonly used for items measured either by their dimensions or their displacements.
In 1793, the liter was introduced in France as one of the new "Republican Measures", and defined as one cubic decimeter.
In 1901, at the 3rd CGPM conference, the liter was redefined as the space occupied by 1 kg of pure water at the temperature of its maximum density (3.98 °C) under a pressure of 1 atm.

Symbol, l, and in the United States, L (which was approved as an alternative symbol by the CGPM in 1979, Resolution 6).
However, the mass of the kilogram is actually defined by the mass of the platinum prototype, which was based on an 18th century determination of the mass of a cubic decimeter of water.
In 1964 the 12th CGPM (Resolution 6) abrogated the 1901 definition and declared “that the word ‘liter’ may be used as a special name for the cubic decimeter,” and recommended that it not be used to present the results of high accuracy volume measurements.

 Conversion of parts per million (ppm) to gram/liter from Scott Specialty Gases
Using the Ideal Gas Law (PV = nRT) for a temperature of 294.1°K (21.1°C), a pressure of 1atm, and the gas constant R of 0.0821 liter x atm/mole x degree K, we find that 1 mole of ideal gas occupies 24.15 liters.
Since the concentration of Compound A is 100 ppm, the total number of moles of Compound A in 1 liter is (total # moles per liter) x (concentration of Compound A).
For example, a concentration of Compound A of 0.000100 (decimal form from equation above) would be 100 ppm, while a concentration of 0.010000 would be 10,000 ppm or 1%.
