Descrição geral

Urea is a colorless, odorless solid. It has prism-like crystals. It forms insoluble nitrate salts with nitric acid and oxalate salts with oxalic acid. On reaction with alkanes or substituted alkanes, it affords crystal-lattice inclusion compounds.
Urea can be prepared from ammonia and carbon-dioxide, via Haber-Bosch process. It can also be used to prepare urea-formaldehyde resins, via condensation reaction.

Aplicação

Urea has been used in the following studies:
  • Synthesis of SnO2 nanoparticles.
  • Synthesis of urethanes, ureides and semicarbazides.
  • Denaturation of protein isolated from Saccharomyces cerevisiae Y15696 strain
  • Protein electrophoretic studies.
Used for the denaturation of proteins and as a mild solubilization agent for insoluble or denatured proteins. Useful for renaturing proteins from samples already denatured with 6 M guanidine chloride such as inclusion bodies. May be used with guanidine hydrochloride and dithiothreitrol (DTT) in the refolding of denatured proteins into their native or active form.
