While networks prepared with an excess of hydroxyl groups are stable, networks in which isocyanate groups are in excess have a more complicated structure because of the possible side reactions (additional crosslinking due to the formation of allophanate, biuret, or isocyanurate).
Leaf-burn is commonly attributed to urea, but this burning is actually caused by an impurity called "biuret" in the urea most commonly supplied for agricultural use.
