The International University of Scholars, popularly known as University of Scholars, has started its journey in 2015 with five departments at the outset. The Trustee Board of the university aims to establish a research-intensive modern private university for Bangladeshi as well as international students which will produce world-class researchers and industry leading professionals. The university is working with the slogan- We Build Professionals, and following American curriculum with strong emphasis on the use of technology for teaching and learning process. Therefore, we are adopting the newest educational technologies (EdTech) to modernize our Learning Management System (LMS) for the best experience of learning as well as teaching. This is the first initiative of such kind in Bangladesh. Our congenial atmosphere and flexible policy inspire the faculty members who are highly qualified having academic degrees and professional training from home and abroad.
"INVESTIGATION INTO THE ADDITION OF BENZOIC ACID AND STYRENE OXIDE & EFFECT OF PHOSPHONIUM SALTS FOR FLAMERETARDANCY IN POLYURETHANE FILMS" Abstract: The thesis will be divided into two sections. First, the synthesis of a 1,2-hydroxy ester was performed using styrene oxide and benzoic acid using several different catalysts and solvents. This project was chosen because there is a limited number of studies in literature and they did not report a systematic study. Various catalysts will be used in this study such as tetrabutylammonium bromide, tetrabutylammonium chloride, tetrabutylammonium fluoride, tetrabutylammonium iodide to determine the effects of the halide on the reaction. The solvents chosen for this research were toluene, isopropanol, butanol and THF to determine solvents effects. Samples were analyzed by Fourier-transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy and Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy. FTIR was used to determine reaction completion and NMR was used to determine the ratio of the regioisomers. The second part of the research is the study of the effects of novel phosphonium salts on flame retardancy. New flame resistant materials are required industrially to replace halogenated flame retardants since these compounds have a negative environmental impact. In this study, phosphonium salts and triphenyl phosphate were incorporated into polyurethane films. FT-IR was used to characterize the polymer. Polyurethane films containing phosphonium salts and triphenyl phosphate were characterized by a burn test and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) to determine their effect on flame retardancy and thermal stability.
