About Urea. Urea (a.k.a. Carbamide) is an nitrogenous organic compound composed of a carbonyl group attached to two amine groups, and plays an important role in many biological processes. it is a product of the decomposition of proteins. It is mostly used as nitrogen-release fertilizer. Urea has the highest nitrogen content between all solid nitrogen-based fertilizers. It is found as white and odorless solid. It is soluble in water and it has very low toxicity.
Chemical Formula. CO(NH2)2
Commercial Grades. Coated grade (white prills or granules); uncoated grade (white prills or granules)
Uses. Having the highest nitrogen content among the solid nitrogenous fertilizers typically used, Urea main application is as a nitrogen-release fertilizer. In fact, more than 90% of the Urea produced commercially is destined for that end. Urea is also employed in the manufacture of urea-formaldehyde resins and urea-melamine-formaldehyde, used in a range of applications such as adhesives, laminates, molding compounds, coatings and textile finishes. In the past years, Urea has been used commercially as a cattle-feed supplement. Other uses of Urea include pharmaceutical preparations (reagent-grade), glues, solvents, NOx removal reagent, airport runway deicing agent and plasticizer.
- Ammonia + calcium dioxide (condensation).
