comment Problems with opentype options under XeTeX
@Andrey Yes, I agree on all counts. (No comment on the code quality.) But polyglossia was developed before LuaTeX was really viable, and because it uses xetexintercharclass it's incompatible, IIRC.

comment Problems with opentype options under XeTeX
@Andrey as a one-time dispenser of such advice too, I discovered that it's a bit more complicated than that. French, however maybe one of those languages where the advice is well taken, although the french in babel is does much much more than the french in polyglossia. See Polyglossia, babel and xelatex

comment Expressing capital M for molar in siunitx package
@ptrcao Take a look at this question: Where do I place my own .sty files. You need to put them in your local texmf folder, not in C:\texlive...

@salamis It's up to you, but the solution I've posted (other than using a different documentclass) is pretty much "best practice", I think.

I would put it in <path-to-local-texmf>/tex/latex/siunitx. (i.e. your local texmf directory.)

comment Expressing capital M for molar in siunitx package
Yes. Using the second definition will then provide a \Molar command that can be used like any other regular SI units. So in your example, you would write \SI{}{\micro\Molar} to get the output you asked for.

comment Adding a .sty file to the appropriate directory?
Furthermore, you should never install packages into the main texlive directory, but use a local directory specifically for local additions. See Where do I place my own .sty files, to make them available to all my .tex files? for a general answer of how to install packages (but I repeat, don't install doublespace.)
