The name is probably off.  The thing to do would be to write down the
molecular formula given the correct name, then look it up in the Merck
Index, the CRC Handbook, or even the Aldrich catalog.  Dictionary of 
Organic Compounds or Chemical Abstracts for heavy searching.  See what 
chemicals have that formula.

"Vitamin C" is close.
