StarChem™ EU 50 solution is an organic intermediate used in various chemical industries. It was originally used for the production of dimethylol ethylene urea thermosetting resins in textiles and paper. It is also used as a scavenging agent to reduce the free formaldehyde in phenolic, melamine, glyoxal, and urea-formaldehyde resin systems for the coatings, construction, and textile industries.
Ethylene Urea (2-imidazolidone) can be used in a variety of new antibiotic intermediates such as mezlocillin acid and azlocillin acid. It also can be used as an intermediate in anti-schistosomiasis drugs and as a basic material for third-generation penicillin.
