Carbamide is an organic substance which is white or slightly pigmented pills. Carbamide is also known as urea and an essential role in the metabolism of nitrogen containing substances by animals. It is odorless, solid and highly soluble in water which is practically non-toxic. In the year 1828, Friedrich Wohler’s discovered that Carbamide can be produced from inorganic materials which were an essential conceptual breakthrough in chemistry.Most of the world industrial production of Carbamide is intended for use as a nitrogen-release fertilizer. Carbamide contains the highest quantity of nitrogen of all solid nitrogenous fertilizer. Various soil bacteria hold the enzyme urease, which catalyzes the conversion of Carbamide to bicarbonate ion (HCO3−) and ammonium ion (NH4+). So, Carbamide fertilizers rapidly convert into the ammonium form in soils. Carbamide is extensively used in fertilizers as a source of nitrogen and is an essential raw material for the chemical industry. Carbamide is generally used before rain as fertilizer to minimize the losses of volatilization (a process in which nitrogen lost as ammonia gas to the atmosphere). Carbamide has plenty number of uses includes manufacturing Carbamide nitrate which is used in industrial explosives and SCR and SNCR reactions to minimize nitrogen oxide pollutants in released gasses from combustion. Carbamide is also used in tooth whitening products, dish soap, cigarettes, dye, hard glue and softening and removing earwax.
