LaTeX is great, but not for the faint of heart. 

I know two ways that might fix things for you.

One is org-entities-user, which makes a dictionary to cover html 
and LaTeX export, e.g.,
    (add-to-list 'org-entities-user '("eng" "\\ng" nil "&eng;" "g" 
    "g" "ŋ"))

Another is to use UTF-8 in LaTeX.  Here's one of my setups:

#+name: koma-article-liberation
#+header: :results silent
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (require 'ox-latex)
     \\setmainfont{Liberation Serif}
     \\setsansfont{Liberation Sans}[Scale=MatchLowercase]
     \\setmonofont{Liberation Mono}[Scale=MatchLowercase]
     \\usepackage[authordate, giveninits=true, noibid, 
     sortcites=true, backend=biber, 
     ("\\section{%s}" . "\\section*{%s}")
     ("\\subsection{%s}" . "\\subsection*{%s}")
     ("\\subsubsection{%s}" . "\\subsubsection*{%s}")
     ("\\paragraph{%s}" . "\\paragraph*{%s}")
     ("\\subparagraph{%s}" . "\\subparagraph*{%s}")))

The key here is the fontspec package.

If you go the UTF-8 route, then you'll need to compile with either 
XeLaTeX or LuaLaTeX, something like this:

#+name: xelatex-biber
#+header: :results silent
#+begin_src emacs-lisp
  (setq org-latex-pdf-process
        '("xelatex -interaction nonstopmode -shell-escape 
        -output-directory %o %f"
          "biber %b"
          "xelatex -interaction nonstopmode -shell-escape 
          -output-directory %o %f"
          "xelatex -interaction nonstopmode -shell-escape 
          -output-directory %o %f"))
