- By systematically treating each functional group in turn the work also identifies what is not known, thus pointing the way to new research areas
- Follows the systematic layout of the successful 1995 COFGT reference work, based on the arrangement and bonding of hetero-atoms around a central carbon atom
- The work will save researchers valuable time in their research as each chapter is written by experts who have critically read and reviewed the literature and presented the best methods of forming every known functional group

Richard Taylor is a graduate and postgraduate of the University of Sheffield, and he then carried out postdoctoral research at Syntex, California (Dr. I. T. Harrison) and University College London (Professor F. Sondheimer). His first academic appointment was at the Open University in Milton Keynes. This post gave Professor Taylor the opportunity to contribute to Open University textbooks, radio programmes and television productions on various aspects of organic chemistry. Professor Taylor then moved to UEA, Norwich where he established his independent research programme,before taking up his present position in York in 1993.
