Thiourea (also called Thiocarbamide or Sulfourea) is the diamide of thiocarbonic acid that resembles urea but contains sulfur instead of oxygen. 'Thio' is a chemical prefix indicates the replacement of an oxygen in an acid radical by sulfur with a negative valence of 2; meaning 'Sulfur' derived from the Greek theion. In fact, thiourea occurs as the mixture of two tautomers: S=C(NH2)2 ( Thiourea) + HS=CNHNH2 (Isothiourea), accordingly, provides three functional groups (mino, imino, and thiol).
