Nitrofurazone Chemical Properties,Uses,Production

Chemical Properties

white to light yellow crystal powde


Anti-infective (topical). Antimicrobial.


ChEBI: A semicarbazone resulting from the formal condensation of semicarbazide with 5-nitrofuraldehyde. A broad spectrum antibacterial drug, although with little activity against Pseudomonas species, it is used as a local application for burns, ulcer , wounds and skin infections.


A type of organic compound containing the C:N.NH.CO.NH2 grouping, formed by reaction of an aldehyde or ketone with semicarbazide (H2N.NH.CO.NH2). The compounds are crystalline solids with sharp melting points, which can be used to characterize the original aldehyde or ketone.

World Health Organization (WHO)

Nitrofural, a nitrofuran derivative with broad-spectrum antibacterial activity, was introduced in the early 1940s for the topical treatment of various skin conditions. It has also been used systemically for the treatment of African trypasonomiasis. Following recent findings of in vitro mutagenicity and of carcinogenicity in experimental animals, use of topical preparations containing this substance was restricted in Germany. Nitrofural remains registered in several countries and the World Health Organization is not aware of restrictive action having been taken elsewhere.

General Description

Odorless pale yellow needles or yellow powder. pH (saturated aqueous solution) 6.0 - 6.5. Alkaline solutions are dark orange.

Air & Water Reactions

Insoluble in water.

Reactivity Profile

Furacilin darkens on prolonged exposure to light. Furacilin can react violently with reducing materials. .

Fire Hazard

Flash point data for Furacilin are not available; however, Furacilin is probably combustible.

Pharmaceutical Applications

A synthetic compound used in the topical treatment of wounds and burns and as an instillation for bladder washout. A nitrofurazone-impregnated urinary catheter is said to reduce infection in catheterized patients. Activity against the common bacterial pathogens is sufficient to cover most pathogens that cause infections of burns and wounds, with the important exception of Ps. aeruginosa. Attention has been drawn to its activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, and its use in clearing carriage has been suggested. Slight absorption occurs from intact skin (c. 1%) and burned skin (5%). It is neither a primary irritant nor a sensitizer, but some preparations contain polyethylene glycol as a vehicle, and absorption can cause problems in patients with reduced renal function. Of limited availability.

Contact allergens

Nitrofurazone is an antibacterial agent used in animal feeds. Occupational dermatitis was reported in cattle breeders or farmers.

Clinical Use

5-Nitro-2-furaldehyde semicarbazone (Furacin) occurs asa lemon-yellow crystalline solid that is sparingly solublein water and practically insoluble in organic solvents.Nitrofurazone is chemically stable, but moderately lightsensitive.It is used topically in the treatment of burns, especiallywhen bacterial resistance to other agents may be a concern.It may also be used to prevent bacterial infection associatedwith skin grafts. Nitrofurazone has a broad spectrumof activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria,but it is not active against fungi. It is bactericidalagainst most bacteria commonly causing surface infections,including S. aureus, Streptococcus spp., E. coli,Clostridium perfringens, Enterobacter (Aerobacter) aerogenes,and Proteus spp.; however, P. aeruginosa strainsare resistant.Nitrofurazone is marketed in solutions, ointments, andsuppositories in a usual concentration of 0.2%.

Safety Profile

Poison by ingestion and intraperitoneal routes. Moderately toxic by subcutaneous route. Questionable carcinogen with experimental carcinogenic, neoplas tigenic, tumorigenic, and teratogenic data, Experimental reproductive effects. A human sensitizer. Human mutation data reported. When heated to decomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.

Veterinary Drugs and Treatments

Nitrofurazone can be used topically as an antibacterial for treating or preventing superficial infections. It is a nitrofuran antibacterial that is bactericidal for many bacteria, including E. Coli, Staph aureus, etc. Nitrofurazone’s mechanism of action is thought to be associated with inhibiting bacterial enzymes that primarily degrade glucose and pyruvate.
