The compound is cyclohexyl hydrogen sulfate.


The name

The compound is a monoester of cyclohexanol and sulfuric acid.

In organic chemistry, the name of an ester is formed according to the pattern

"name of alkyl group from alcohol" + "name of acid - -ic acid + -ate"

The name of the alcohol is cyclohexyl alcohol.

The name of the #"HSO"_4# portion of the name is hydrogen sulfate.

Thus, the name of the ester is cyclohexyl hydrogen sulfate.

The reaction

In this case, the ester is formed by the electrophilic addition of sulfuric acid to cyclohexene (#"C"_6"H"_10#).
