The study of organosulfates is a burgeoning area in biology, yet there are significant challenges with their synthesis. We report the development of a tributylsulfoammonium betaine as a high yielding route to organosulfates. The optimised reaction conditions were interrogated with a diverse range of alcohols, including natural products and amino acids.
