Osama Musa, Ph.D., senior vice president and chief technology officer, Ashland and an expert team of scientists have published a six-volume book, “The Handbook of Pyrrolidone and Caprolactam Based Materials: Synthesis, Characterization and Industrial Applications.”
 
Pyrrolidone and caprolactam based materials have very interesting, diverse properties and functionalities that shape everyday life. This handbook details the broad human benefits of the materials within thirty-two chapters, many of which are from the chemist’s viewpoint.

Here is a brief overview for each of the volumes -

Volume one presents the chemistry of small lactam-based molecules, uncovering their unique properties.

The second volume explores the physical chemistry and molecular interactions of pyrrolidone and caprolactam based materials. This volume is dedicated to the memory of Michael A. Tallon, an Ashland scientist who spent several decades working on the study of these materials.

Volume three reviews the physical chemistry and molecular interactions of pyrrolidone and caprolactam based materials ranging from cocrystals and coordination complexes to solution properties, characterization techniques and computational chemistry.

The fourth volume includes detailed discussions of nuclear magnetic resonance and Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy, thermal and mechanical properties, and imaging techniques as applied to various phenomena involving pyrrolidone and caprolactam materials.

Volumes five and six explore relevant commercial subjects including applications in consumer and industrial end markets such as pharmaceutical, hair care, skin care, oral care, home care, adhesives, digital printing, coatings and more.
