Özet

Chemicals used commercially or which have been studied or previously employed to protect wood from degradation by fungi and insects are reviewed. Basic information on their properties, mechanisms and typical uses is provided. High cost limits the development of new fungicides and insecticides specifically for wood preservation. Instead innovations use different actives combinations or adjuvants to increase toxicity to target organisms, improve penetration, provide protection against oxidation or biodegradation, reduce physical depletion, or improve ancillary properties such as water repellency.
