    Wood preservation is necessary and is economically important. Copper compoundsare used for wood preservation because of their good fungicidal properties. Since copper compounds do not fix into wood, they can leach out ofit. A presence of chromium prevents leaching of copper from wood. Recently, many countries intend to bound or limit the use of chromium salts. Therefore, experts looking for other suitable compounds to fix copper and amines seem to be suitable substitutes for chromium. We report about our investigations of interactions between copper(II) octanoate and ethanolamine (C2H7NO, 2-aminoethanole) and wood or its components. We found out that ethanolamine chemically reacts with wood. With the FTIR method, we noticed changes on groups belonging to lignin or hemicelluloses. We developed an indicator for spot-tests spot-tests of ethanolamine in wood.
