- 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

"This new edition continues how the subject of organic synthesis was treated in the original in terms of functional group transformations, and it brings in all the new developments from the literature since the last version was published. It is truly a comprehensive, encyclopaedic overview of all known (and as yet unknown) functional groups. The material is easily accessible and provides essential references to methodologies for the interconversion of functional groups in organic synthesis. The references provide entry into the key literature and background necessary for anyone designing a new synthetic procedure. Organic and inorganic chemists who work in academia, industry, and government will find this series of books invaluable in their work. Teachers and students at all levels will appreciate all it offers and find that it will enhance their work. It is voluminous (6,400 pages, seven volumes, 144 chapters, written by 190 experts); it is expensive, and it may be affordable only by libraries." Summing Up: Recommended. Graduate students; faculty and researchers; professionals. --J. Landesberg, Adelphi University, CHOICE - Current Reviews for Academic Libraries, 2005
"The second edition of this very useful reference consists of 144 reviews written by leading scientists who evaluate and summarize methods for organic functional group transformations.
