# siunitx nested "per" symbols

I am attempting to type the following using siunitx:

K/(W/m)

which is how this quantity is commonly written in my field. I was hoping \si{\kelvin\per\watt\per\meter} would do it, but that doesn't seem to work.

Is there a way to do this?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{siunitx}
\begin{document}
$\si[per-mode=symbol]{\kelvin\per(\watt\per\meter)}$
\end{document}


• Ah, I didn't realize you could use parentheses in the macro, too. Thanks! Jun 12 '19 at 1:50
