A brief review on studies aimed at initiating a neutronless nuclear reaction between protons and boron nuclei is presented. The least energy-cost of a currently known approach to ignition of pB reaction is proposed using a petawatt laser for producing a magnetized plasma of laser-accelerated ions and electrons as well as using a terawatt laser for inertial confinement of such a plasma.
