A thiosemicarbazide is an analog with a sulfur atom in place of the oxygen atom. Semicarbazone is a ketone form of semicarbazide which is derived by the condensation reaction between a ketone (or aldehyde) and a semicarbazide.
Semicarbazide is used in preparing pharmaceuticals including nitrofuran antibacterials (furazolidone, nitrofurazone, nitrofurantoin) and related compounds. Semicarbazide is used as a detection reagent in thin layer chromatography (TLC). Semicarbazide stains α-keto acids on the TLC plate, which must then be viewed under ultraviolet light to see the results.
