water borne copper naphthenate wood preservatives, have the advantage of low volatile organic compound emissions (Shaw 1994; Craciun and Kamdem 1997). While considerable efforts have been put into re- search on interactions between copper-amine preserva- tive systems and wood (Cooper 1998; Zhang and Kam- dem 2000a), much less attention has been focused on identifying Cu(II) species in ammoniacal copper or cop- per amine preservative solutions and to determining the influence of the various forms of copper complexes in solutions on performance of treated wood, such as

biological resistance against fungi and termites with promising results. Combinations of tannin extracts with inorganic biocides were also tested with positive results ( Scalbert et al. 1998 ); Yamaguchi and Okuda 1998 ; Sen et al. 2009 ). The problem is, however, the low leaching resistance (LR) of tannin-containing wood preservatives. Tannins could be fixed in wood by means of in situ polymerization, for example with formaldehyde and hexamine (Pizzi 1994 ; Thevenon et al. 2009 ). Experiments with the addition of boron (<1%) were performed and resulted in boron

Introduction Wood preservatives based on copper, chromium and arsenic (CCA) are used world-wide to protect wood from wood destroying insects and fungi in most environments. How- ever, due to environmental concerns, the use of these preservatives has been restricted in several countries in recent years. In Sweden, for instance, the use of wood treated with chromium and arsenic based preservatives has been banned in most above ground situations (KemI 1990). As a consequence of restrictions, several chromium and arsenic free preservatives based on fungicides

( Hughes 2004 ), especially for use class 3 according to EN 335-1 (2006). For example, chromate copper arsenate (CCA) was a widely distributed wood protection formulation for more than 30 years all over the world ( Eaton and Hale 1993 ). In 2003, European legislation banned CCA in any application, where the treated wood may pose a risk to human and animal health due to its high mammalian and environmental toxicity. Several alkyl ammonium compounds such as tertiary amine salts and quaternary ammonium compounds are other examples for common wood preservatives ( Pernak et
