The title compound, Na+·C5H11O8S- [systematic name: sodium (1S,2S,3S,4R)-1,2,3,4,5-penta­hydroxy­pentane-1-sulfonate], is formed by reaction of D-lyxose with sodium bis­ulfite (sodium hydrogen sulfite) in water. The anion has an open-chain structure in which one of the oxygen atoms of the sulfonate residue, the S atom, the C atoms of the sugar chain and the O atom of the hy­droxy­methyl group form an essentially planar zigzag chain with the corresponding torsion angles lying between 179.80 (11) and 167.74 (14)°. A three-dimensional bonding network exists in the crystal structure involving hexa­coordination of sodium ions by O atoms, three of which are provided by a single D-lyxose-sulfonate unit and the other three by two sulfonate groups and one hy­droxy­methyl group, each from separate units of the adduct. Extensive inter­molecular O-H...O hydrogen bonding supplements this bonding network.
