I am trying to find the IUPAC name for this structure.
I a keep coming across 1,3-diol cyclohexane, but my homework online keeps saying its wrong. Does anyone know what this structure is?

Thanks:)

Hmmm. Cryptic. Maybe... best known alcohol is not named 1-ol ethane?

Nope. Cyclohexanol doesn't have two -OH groups.

1,3-cyclohexanediol

Yes. And now you should get an infraction for giving final answer. Sigh.

Yes, it takes as much skill to avoid giving the answer but giving enough help to be... helpful.
