synthesis of conjugates of polyhedral Boron Compounds with carbohydratesRussian Chemical Reviews, 2009Co-Authors: A V Orlova, L O KononovAbstract:
The published data on the methods for the synthesis of conjugates of polyhedral Boron Compounds with carbohydrates, potential third-generation agents for neutron capture therapy, are systematised and generalised.

polyhedral Boron Compounds as potential diagnostic and therapeutic antitumor agentsAnti-cancer Agents in Medicinal Chemistry, 2006Co-Authors: V I Bregadze, Igor B Sivaev, Sergey A GlazunAbstract:
The use of polyhedral Boron hydrides for cancer treatment is traditionally connected with Boron neutron capture therapy. More recently, polyhedral borate anions were proposed as carriers of radionuclide label for targeted radionuclide therapy and diagnostics of cancer. Some metal derivatives of carboranes were found to demonstrate significant antitumor activity themselves. This review is designed to highlight the recent work concerning various fields of potential application of polyhedral Boron Compounds in anticancer diagnostics and therapy.

Termite resistance of MDF panels treated with various Boron CompoundsInternational Journal of Molecular Sciences, 2009Co-Authors: Mustafa Usta, Derya Ustaomer, S. Nami Kartal, Sedat OndaralAbstract:
In this study, the effects of various Boron Compounds on the termite resistance of MDF panels were evaluated. Either borax (BX), boric acid (BA), zinc borate (ZB), or sodium perborate tetrahydrate (SPT) were added to urea-formaldehyde (UF) resin at target contents of 1%, 1.5%, 2% and 2.5% based on dry fiber weight. The panels were then manufactured using 12% urea-formaldehyde resin and 1% NH(4)Cl. MDF samples from the panels were tested against the subterranean termites, Coptotermes formosanus Shiraki. Laboratory termite resistance tests showed that all samples containing Boron Compounds had greater resistance against termite attack compared to untreated MDF samples. At the second and third weeks of exposure, nearly 100% termite mortalities were recorded in all Boron compound treated samples. The highest termite mortalities were determined in the samples with either BA or BX. Also, it was found that SPT showed notable performance on the termite mortality. As chemical loadings increased, termite mortalities increased, and at the same time the weight losses of the samples decreased.
