    In the last few years, a series of peer-reviewed scientific articles has been published that establish the presence of thermitic materials at the World Trade Center (WTC). [A-D]

    Although we know that nanothermite has been found in the WTC dust, we do not know what purpose it served in the deceptive demolition of the WTC buildings. It could be that the nanothermite was used simply to drive fires in the impact zones and elevator areas – fires which would otherwise have gone out too early or not been present at all – and thereby create the deception that jet fuel-induced fires could wreak the havoc seen. Nanothermite might also have been used to produce the explosions necessary to destroy the structural integrity of the buildings.

    Nanothermite, also called superthermite, is the common name for a subset of metastable intermolecular composites (MICs) characterized by a highly exothermic reaction after ignition. Nanothermites contain an oxidizer and a reducing agent that are intimately mixed on the nanometer scale. Such nano-energetics are produced for various applications including propellants, explosives, and pyrotechnics.

    There are various ways to make nanothermites. They can be made as solid mixtures of aluminum and metal oxides which are typically produced using techniques like dynamic vapor phase condensation and arrested reactive milling. These mixtures are much like typical thermite mixtures, but with the components introduced on a much smaller scale. Alternatively, nanothermites can be made in a liquid solution that later gels, capturing the reactive components in an intimately mixed composite which is dried before it can be ignited. These are called sol-gel nanothermites, also known more generally as energetic nanocomposites.

    Sol-gel nanothermites often contain other components such as fluorinated silanes, and therefore carbon and silicon. The nanothermite found in World Trade Center (WTC) dust samples contains carbon and silicon as well. Ignition of such a nanothermite results in the production of gas which rapidly expands and does pressure-volume work.

    It seems Nanothermite may have played varying roles in the controlled demolition of the WTC's. I guess we'll never know though because the site has long since been scrubbed down.

    Scrubbed down?

    Evidence removed...sorry. I was using a sarcastic analogy.

    What evidence has been removed, and by whom?

    The steel from the towers that was shipped to China. By whom exactly? Who knows?

    Not changing the subject. scrubbed down=steel removed. (or so I intended it to mean). Dance,dance,dance....I need a beer or two, or ten.

    That may be your problem right there.

    Everything was examined by several different agencies before recycling began. Much of it is preserved and still exists.

    Enjoy your bender.

    So nanothermite was found?

    I think perhaps that some of the aluminum in the towers got pulverized by the impact of the collapse, creating nano-scale sized dust particles. There would also have been plenty of iron oxide from all that steel in the towers (rust).

    What has a personal opinion got to do with it ?
    I might believe that all New World Order members are taught to Shape Shift -- but so what?

    We need hard , independent , expert scientific facts in this specific area .
    I don't claim special knowledge , but at this point I am unaware of anything that supports the type of opinion that you put forward . If such evidence does become available ,I have no problem changing my views to accommodate new facts , rather than guesses or even a hypothesis .

    No, "nanothermite" was not found.

    Paint was found, and a few snake oil salesmen sold it as "nano thermite" to their gullible, sheeplike followers.

    If your Post was intended as a joke , I apologise for not understanding it .
    Taken literally , your comment is nonsense , as I expect you realise .

    RWF, was this thread created so that you could avoid responding to my thermite post in the college education thread? Do you have nothing to say about the inconsistencies in your theory?

    Thermite could not have been used because:

    1. The buildings did not reach the temperatures of a thermite reaction.
    2. There's not a large enough mass of thermite in a paint layer to sustain a thermite reaction, let alone melt steel.
    3. Compounds in the paint would inhibit the thermite reaction.
    4. Jet fuel and office combustibles do not burn hot enough to ignite thermite.

    Does your theory have an answer to these problems?

    you'll find out that his posts are ALWAYS nonsense and full of garbage.

    If their goal was to demolish the towers,why would they use an incendiary,instead of the industry accepted RDX,or C-4?
