Milliliters can be abbreviated as *mL*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *ml* or *mℓ*. For example, 1 milliliter can be written as 1 mL, 1 ml, or 1 mℓ.

Since one milliliter is equivalent to one cubic centimeter, milliliters are sometimes expressed using the abbreviation for a cubic centimeter (*cc*) for things such as medical dosages or engine displacements.
