# IUPAC name of trisubstituted benzene ring

What is the IUPAC name for the compound shown below? I named it as 6-Bromo-3-hydroxy benzonitrile according to the numbering scheme in 1b, since the priority order is $\ce{-CN} > \ce{-OH} > \ce{-Br}$.

• We compare the answer's [1,2,5] and your [1,3,6]. The first numbers (1 and 1) are the same; the second numbers (2 and 3) has the answer smaller than your attempt; therefore the answer is correct. – DHMO Oct 3 '16 at 15:39
• The priority order only determines which goes into the suffix. – DHMO Oct 3 '16 at 15:39

• Numbering of carbons aside, there are two things I want to point out. Firstly, the first letter of the substituent should not be capitalised, so bromo is correct and not Bromo. Secondly, there is no space between the prefixes and the name of the parent compound, so there is no space between hydroxy and benzonitrile. – orthocresol Oct 3 '16 at 18:09
