Since one mole of any substance contains 6.0225 x 1023 atoms (for elements) or molecules (for compounds), a hundredth of a mole would contain 6.0225 x 1021 atoms or molecules.

It could also be called a "centimole" but I've never heard anybody use that unit. The more common unit is a millimole, which is one thousandth of a mole.
