Early 1900's Concentration Measurements
I have read a few papers that were written in the early 1900's where their concentration measurements are M/4, M/8, M/16, M/32, M/256. I am not sure what this means and I was wondering if anyone could relate these concentration measurements to normal concentration measurements we use now, such as Molar. An example of a paper that used this method of measuring concentration is linked below.
I have searched google and had no luck finding what the M/number concentration measurement means. If anyone could find out what this means it would really help.

Is this it (unit molar)

The reason for the fractions being powers of 2 is also a very simple one: It was standard practice to make up a 1 M solution, and then prepare a series of dilutions by pipetting a 50 mL aliquot, and making up to 100 mL in a volumetric flask and then repeating that procedure several times to obtain a M/2, M/4, M/8, M/16 etc. series.
