Thank you for your question on Studypool.

This is C4H9OH (or C4H10O), otherwise known as butanol. This specific structure of butanol, where the OH group is attached near the center of the molecule, is known as sec-butanol. 



I hope this answered your questions. Please let me know if you would like anything clarified, especially if you would like to know how I derived the molecular formula from the image.
