Ureas

Although urea is commonly used in the denaturation and solubilization of proteins, urea is also a key component in several synthetic organic reactions. For example, urea has been applied as a derivatization reagent for aldehydes and ketones producing crystalline compounds with characteristic melting points. Urea is also employed in the methylation of carboxylic acids, phenols, thiols, β-diketones, amino acids and amines. Other uses include Rh2(esp)2 catalyzed oxidative C–H activation, amination, and oxidative cyclization, condensation with an aldehyde in the Biginelli reaction, and urea-derivatized side chains to serve as metal ligating moieties.
