Question simulation of process alpha+11B -> 14N+n in boron doped neutron shielding

Dear all,

I am simulating the neutron attenuation of a shielding of polyethylene doped with 5% of B. I have seen that, besides the well known reaction n + 10B -> 7Li + alpha, there is also the reaction alpha + 11B -> 14N + n whose cross section has a resonance peak in the zone 1-2 MeV (where the alpha from the previous reaction are emitted). My question is then: is this second reaction implemented in GEANT4? if yes, which physical process I have to insert in my physics list to simulate this reaction?

Thank you. Amanda Porta
