Sulfonic acid is an hypothetical acid with formula H-S(=O)2-OH. This compound is a tautomer of sulfurous acid HO-S(=O)-OH, but less stable, and would likely convert to that very quickly if it were formed. Although this compound is unimportant, there are many derived compounds, with formula R-S(=O)2-OH for various R.
