Urea is a nitrogenous compound that contains a carbonyl group attached to two amine groups. Synthetic urea is created from synthetic ammonia and carbon dioxide and is produced in solid form and has a Prilled or Granular shape. Urea is also known by the brand name Carbamide. This solid substance is very soluble in water and is almost non-toxic. It is also not acidic or alkaline in terms of pH, Urea is widely used as a source of nitrogen (N) in fertilizers and is an important raw material for the chemical industry.

GRANULE UREA FEATURES
Technical Data of Urea
Urea is a monocarboxylic acid amide and a one-carbon compound. Urea has two NH2 groups connected by a carbonyl functional group (C=O). The urea molecule is planar. In solid urea, the oxygen center is involved in two N-H-O hydrogen bonds. A dense and energetically favorable hydrogen-bonding network is likely created at the expense of efficient molecular packing. The carbon in urea is described as sp2-combined, the C-N bonds have a significant double bond character, and the carbonyl oxygen is basic compared to formaldehyde. The high water solubility of urea shows its ability to have extensive hydrogen bonding with water. Due to its tendency to form porous frameworks, urea has the ability to trap many organic compounds. In these so-called chlorates, “guest” organic molecules are kept in the channels formed by interpenetrating spirals composed of hydrogen-bonded urea molecules. This feature can be used to separate mixtures, for example, in the production of jet fuel and lubricating oils and in the separation of hydrocarbons.
Granular Urea Uses
Urea would be the most important raw material in petrochemical and chemical industries it has uses as below:
- It is used as a raw material for the production of urea-formaldehyde and urea-melamine-formaldehyde resins.
- Urea is also used to produce plywood.
- It is also used as a stabilizer of nitrocellulose explosives
- Urea has important uses as a fertilizer and food supplement, as well as a raw material for the production of plastic and medicine.
- It is an element in diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) that contains 32.5% urea and 67.5% deionized water. DEF is injected into the exhaust stream of diesel vehicles to break down dangerous NOx emissions into harmless nitrogen and water.
- A component of animal feed, it is a relatively inexpensive source of nitrogen to promote growth.
- It is considered a non-corrosive alternative to rock salt for road de-icing. It is often the main ingredient in pet-friendly salt alternatives, although it is less effective than traditional rock salt or calcium chloride.
- It is the main ingredient in the formulation of hair removal compounds such as Veet.
- It is one of the reasons for the brown color in the cans produced in the factory.
- It is an ingredient in some skin creams, moisturizers, hair conditioners, and shampoos.
- A flame retardant is commonly used in dry chemical fire extinguishing charges such as a mixture of urea and potassium bicarbonate.
- It is an important ingredient in the formulation of many teeth-whitening products.
- It is one of the raw materials for the production of dishwashing soap
- It is used together with diammonium phosphate as a yeast nutrient to ferment sugars into ethanol.
- Nutrient used by plankton in ocean feeding experiments for geoengineering purposes.
- It is used as an additive to increase the working temperature and opening time of skin glue.
- It is used as an additive for solubility and moisture retention in dye baths for dyeing or printing fabric.
- It is used as an optical parametric oscillator in nonlinear optics.
- Urea is a raw material that is used in the manufacture of many chemicals such as various plastics, urea-formaldehyde resins, and adhesives.
- Also, industrial urea is necessary for the production of raw materials, glue, fertilizer, commercial products, and resin production.
- More than 90% of global urea production is used in agriculture as a nitrogen-releasing fertilizer.
- Urea is used in systems to reduce cars’ exhaust smoke emissions.
