It is observed that boron can be alloyed with RPd3 (R = rare earth) compounds to yield alloys of the type RPd3Bx, where x typically ranges from 0 to 1. Addition of boron does not change the structure type but merely results in lattice expansion. The most likely position for boron is the body centered position. In CePd3 and EuPd3 addition of boron causes a change in the valence state of the rare earth ion.
