Function and use

It is used as a raw material for the synthesis of drugs such as sulfathiazole, methionine and fat pig tablets. Used as a raw material for dyes and dyeing auxiliaries, resins and compression molding powders. It can also be used as a vulcanization accelerator for rubber, a flotation agent for metal minerals, a catalyst for phthalic anhydride and fumaric acid, and as a metal anticorrosive. In terms of photographic materials, it can be used as a developer and a toner. It can also be used in the electroplating industry. Thiourea is also used in many aspects such as diazo photosensitive paper, synthetic resin coating, anion exchange resin, germination accelerator, and bactericide. Thiourea is also used as a fertilizer. [4]
