    Urea or carbamide is an organic compound with the chemical formula (NH2)2CO. The molecule has two amide (—NH2) groups joined by a carbonyl (C=O) functional group.

    Urea serves an important role in the metabolism of nitrogen-containing compounds by animals and is the main nitrogen-containing substance in the urine of mammals. It is solid, colourless, and odorless (although the ammonia which it gives off in the presence of water, including water vapor in the air, has a strong odor). It is highly soluble in water and non-toxic. Dissolved in water it is neither acidic nor alkaline
