Wood extractives can be envisaged to protect heartwood by at least three different mechanisms, i.e. fungicide, free radical scavengers/antioxidants and as metal chelators. In short-term laboratory decay tests using two different wood species and decay fungi, the combination of different organic fungicides with various antioxidants and/or metal chelators gave enhanced activity as compared to the organic biocide alone, with the best results usually obtained with all three compounds.
