Molecule Structure Image



Carbamide peroxide is an adduct of hydrogen peroxide and urea. Like hydrogen peroxide, it is an oxidizer. It is mainly used as a disinfecting and bleaching agent in cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. As a drug, this compound is used in some preparations for the whitening of teeth. It is also used to relieve minor inflammation of gums, oral mucosal surfaces and lips including canker sores and dental irritation, and to emulsify and disperse ear wax. In the laboratory, it is used as a more easily handled replacement for hydrogen peroxide
