Boron compounds are also used in cementation of iron, as fibers and filaments in composites with metals or ceramics, in special-purpose alloys, for nuclear reactors, as a shield for nuclear radiation and in instruments used for detecting neutrons.
Good fixation of the boron compounds was observed after the leaching test, and they also showed an excellent antifungal activity against both Coriolus versicolor and Tyromyces palustris.
After analyzing the FTIR spectra of PR-HBPB treated at different temperatures between 220 and 600[degrees]C, the structural changes of boron compounds in the modified resin are further studied by B1s XPS spectra at the higher temperatures.

Boron compounds are recognized as inexpensive, easily applicable, biologically active, flame retardant and, more importantly, environmentally safe preservatives and have been used for timber preservation since the early 20th century (Williams 1990, Lloyd 1993, Laks and Manning 1994).
