According to new report available with Million Insights, Thiourea is an organosulfur compound also termed as thiocarbamide that resembles urea but contains sulfur instead of oxygen.
One such example is the incorporation of Ivocerin and thiocarbamide in photopolymerized resin cements as initiators.11 It is claimed, that Ivocerin(Variolink Esthetic, Ivocalr Vivadent) when exposed to light results in a cleavage of chemical bond within the photo initiator itself, which reacts with monomer to form polymerization network.11
It proposed some drugs that cause halitosis; lithium salts, penicillamine, griseofulvin, thiocarbamide, dimethylsulfoxide, ethyl alcohol, antihistaminics, diuretics, phenothiazines derivatives, tranquilizers, choral hydrate, nitrites and nitrates, amphetamines, paraldehyde, suplatatosilate, bisphosphonates, metronidazole, arsenic salts (9).
