urea
Definition: An organic chemical compound that is the waste product produced when the humans and other mammals, amphibians — and some fish — metabolize protein.

Notes:
1. As might be expected, it is the key component in ocean urea fertilization, a geoengineering biosequestration technique.

2. It was discovered by the French chemist Hillaire Rouelle in 1773.
