This question already has an answer here:

I am confused as to the nomenclature of poly substituted benzenes. Would more preference be give to to priority order or the alphabetical order? In this pdf, 4-aminophenol has been cited as more correct rather than 4- hydroxyaniline. However, there are some websites which site the other one as more correct. What would be the correct nomenclature. A reference from one of IUPAc's books itself would be great.

Thanks a lot!!
