Use and Manufacturing
Use and Manufacturing:
Methods of Manufacturing

Production of thiourea is now carried out by treating technical-grade calcium cyanamide with hydrogen sulfide or one of its precursors, e.g., ammonium sulfide or calcium hydrogen sulfide. The calcium cyanamide must contain at least 23% nitrogen and must be free from calcium carbide, /or/ explosive acetylene is liberated by water or hydrogen sulfide.
In Germany, thiourea is produced in a closed system by reaction of calcium cyanamide with hydrogen sulfide ... A reaction vessel is charged continuously with an aqueous suspension of calcium cyanamide and a mixture of hydrogen sulfide and carbon dioxide ... The converted reaction mixture is removed continuously from the reactor and excess H2S is removed by stripping. Waste-gas from the reactor contains hydrogen sulfide, which is purified in a scrubber connected to the reactor. The stripped thiourea solution is filtered to remove the precipitated calcium carbonate formed as one of the reaction products. The filtrate is evaporated in vacuum and thiourea is crystallized by cooling. It is filtered, washed, and dried in an air stream.
Made by fusing ammonium thiocyanate: Powers and Powers, Mitchchell, US 2552584; US 2560596 (both 1951 to Koppers); by treating cyanamide with hydrogen sulfide: Robin, Jr., US 2173067 (1940 to Am. Cyanamid); Lewis, US 2393917 (1946 to Monsanto); Van de Kamp, US 2357149 (1944 to Merck & Co.).
DERIVATION: (1) By heating dry ammonium thiocyanate, extraction with a concentrated solution of ammonium thiocyanate, with subsequent crystallization; (2) action of hydrogen sulfide on cyanamide.

Biomedical Effects and Toxicity
Pharmacological Action:
- Substances used for the detection, identification, analysis, etc. of chemical, biological, or pathologic processes or conditions. Indicators are substances that change in physical appearance, e.g., color, at or approaching the endpoint of a chemical titration, e.g., on the passage between acidity and alkalinity. Reagents are substances used for the detection or determination of another substance by chemical or microscopical means, especially analysis. Types of reagents are precipitants, solvents, oxidizers, reducers, fluxes, and colorimetric reagents. (From Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed, p301, p499)
Therapeutic Uses:
Thiourea had a former use in the treatment of excessive thyroid gland activity. The doses of thiourea recommended vary considerably. Originally, a dose of 2-3 g daily was used, especially as an initial dose. This was later reduced because of the associated side-effects. The side-effects of thiourea have been described from observations of the former therapeutic use of thiourea in the 1940s as a thyroid depressant. Forty-nine (i.e., 9.3%) of 525 patients who were treated with thiourea suffered from one or more of the following side-effects as specified by the respective number of individual cases quoted in parentheses: agranulocytosis (1), leukopenia (4), elevated temperature (24), erythema (9), swollen lymph nodes (1), pains in muscles and joints (4), gastrointestinal disorders (17), and various other symptoms. Elevated temperature was observed almost immediately after commencement of the therapy and regressed upon its termination. Both attacks of feverishness, which occur within 7-14 days after the onset of the therapy, and skin reactions have been attributed to sensitization.
Biomedical Effects and Toxicity:

PHARMACOKINETIC STUDY OF (14)CARBON THIOUREA IN RAT ... REVEALED THAT PARENT CMPD &/OR A METABOLITE IS BOUND SELECTIVELY TO PROTEIN IN LIVER, KIDNEY, & LUNG.
(14)carbon labeled thiourea was given iv or orally to rats at a low (0.16 mg/kg) or high (160 mg/kg) dose. Following iv admin, the radioactive label was covalently bound to macromolecular fractions such as proteins or peptides. The elimination of thiourea from plasma was greatly delayed following the high iv dose (half-life beta 7.0 hr) as compared with that after the low dose (high-life beta 0.69 hr). After the low dose, very high radioactivity was present in the lung, thymus and Harder's gland at 60 min following iv admin, whereas when the high dose was admin the radioactivity was distributed almost homogeneously throughout the body. [Hirate J et al; Chem Pharm Bull 30 (9): 3319-27 (1982)] PubMed Abstract
The whole blood levels and whole-body autoradiography following iv admin of thiourea which is considered to covalently bind to the macromolecules in the body, were investigated in 1 day old, 1 wk old, 3 wk old and 8 wk old mice in order to clarify the change of disposition kinetics accompanied by growth. The total body clearance for thiourea was remarkably lower in 1 day old and 1 wk old mice than in more aged mice. The lower metabolic clearance as well as renal clearance in 1 day old and 1 wk old mice seemed to be responsible for this observation. The whole body autoradiograms obtained at 60 min following iv admin of (14)carbon labeled thiourea showed the homogeneous distribution of radioactivity throughout the body in 1 day old and 1 wk old mice, but highly localized radioactive areas in the liver and lung of more aged mice. This remarkable difference was assumed to be brought about by the difference in quantity of the macromolecules in the liver and lung which can covalently bind with thiourea. This assumption was supported by gel filtration of lung and liver homogenates on Sephadex G-10. [Hirate J et al; J Pharmacobio-Dyn 6 (5): 323-30 (1983)] PubMed Abstract

Environmental Fate and Exposure Potential
Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary:
TERRESTRIAL FATE: Based on a classification scheme(1), an estimated Koc value of 3(SRC), determined from a log Kow of -1.08(2) and a regression-derived equation(3), indicates that thiourea is expected to have very high mobility in soil(SRC). Volatilization of thiourea from moist soil surfaces is not expected to be an important fate process(SRC) given an estimated Henry's Law constant of 2.0X10-9 atm-cu m/mole(SRC), derived from its vapor pressure, 2.8X10-3 mm Hg(4), and its water solubility, 1.42X10+5 mg/L(5). Thiourea is not expected to volatilize from dry soil surfaces(SRC) based upon its vapor pressure(4). Thiourea was shown to degrade in soil by both chemical and microbial degradation, although high levels of thiourea may suppress microflora activity for extended periods of time(6), suggesting that biodegradation is not an important environmental fate process in soil(SRC).
AQUATIC FATE: Based on a classification scheme(1), an estimated Koc value of 3(SRC), determined from a log Kow of -1.08(2) and a regression-derived equation(3), indicates that thiourea is not expected to adsorb to suspended solids and sediment in water(SRC). Volatilization from water surfaces is not expected(3) based upon an estimated Henry's Law constant of 2.0X10-9 atm-cu m/mole(SRC), derived from its vapor pressure, 2.8X10-3 mm Hg(4) and water solubility, 1.42X10+5 mg/L(8). According to a classification scheme(5), a BCF of
ATMOSPHERIC FATE: According to a model of gas/particle partitioning of semivolatile organic compounds in the atmosphere(1), thiourea, which has an extrapolated vapor pressure of 2.8X10-3 mm Hg at 25 deg C(2), is expected to exist solely as a vapor in the ambient atmosphere. Vapor-phase thiourea is degraded in the atmosphere by reaction with photochemically-produced hydroxyl radicals(SRC); the half-life for this reaction in air is estimated to be 3 hours(SRC), calculated from its rate constant of 4.2X10-11 cu cm/molecule-sec at 25 deg C(3) determined using a structure estimation method(3). In methanol solution, the ultraviolet absorption spectrum shows weak absorption from 290 to 310 nm with no absorption above 310 nm(5) suggesting a potential for direct photolysis(SRC). The GSF Test for photochemical degradation resulted in only a 0.23% thiourea degradation(4). Thiourea, adsorbed on silica gel and irradiated with light, resulted in 4.7% degradation(6).
