Preserving Bamboo with Xylophene

Preserving Bamboo with Xylophene

After building our house with local wood (Azobe and Padauk) we would like to build a house with the local african bamboo that indigenous people calls "China Bamboo". There is plenty bamboo here but nobody is using it.

The problem is preservation, as I cannot find borax. We will submerge the bamboo poles in water for one month, but can we also protect the poles with common chemical products for wood protection like 'Xylophene'?
