Element transformed in solar fusion?

Our sun mostly transforms hydrogen nuclei into helium by fusion, but it also fuses helium with helium, lithium with hydrogen, and beryllium with hydrogen, to make elements as heavy as boron.

What element transformed in solar fusion?
Our sun produces mostly helium by fusion, but it also uses fusion to make lithium, beryllium and boron. Temperature and mass determine how far a star can go with fusion. "Solar fusion" only refers to the fusion going on in Sol, the star nearest Earth (our star, the sun). Stellar nucleosynthesis is how elements are produced in stars, and in much larger & hotter stars fusion is responsible for elements as heavy as unstable zinc, or stable iron.
