Explosives Found in World Trade Center Dust

The scientific paper Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe conclusively shows the presence of unignited aluminothermic explosives in dust samples from the Twin Towers, whose chemical signature matches previously documented aluminothermic residues found in the same dust samples. The present review of the paper and related research is intended to summarize those findings for the non-technical reader. To that end, I first provide a short introduction to the subject of aluminothermic explosives, then outline the methods and results of analysis of the dust samples, and finally explore the significance of these findings.

We conclude that the red layer of the red/gray chips we have discovered in the WTC dust is active, unreacted thermitic material, incorporating nanotechnology, and is a highly energetic pyrotechnic or explosive material.


Safe handling of the malleable sol-gel material allows easy coating of surfaces (such as steel), which the same group, in a subsequent report, says they have achieved.


“The sol-gel process is very amenable to dip-, spin-, and spray-coating technologies to coat

surfaces. We have utilized this property to dipcoat various substrates to make sol-gel

Fe2O3/Al/Viton coatings. The energetic coating dries to give a nice adherent film.” “We have

prepared fine powders, pressed pellets, cast monoliths, and thin films of the hybrid inorganic/

organic energetic nanocomposite.”


A report on an April 2001 conference discloses who was known to be working on such explosives at that time:


The 221st National Meeting of the American Chemical Society held during April 2001 in San

Diego featured a symposium on Defense Applications of Nanomaterials. One of the 4 sessions

was titled nanoenergetics…. This session provided a good representation of the breadth of

work ongoing in this field, which is roughly 10 years old.… At this point in time, all of the

military services and some DOE and academic laboratories have active R&D programs aimed

at exploiting the unique properties of nanomaterials that have potential to be used in

energetic formulations for advanced explosives…. nanoenergetics hold promise as useful ingredients for the thermobaric (TBX) and TBX-like weapons, particularly due to

their high degree of tailorability with regards to energy release and impulse management.

Thermobaric and fuel-air explosives have been used by terrorists since the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing in Lebanon which used a gas-enhanced explosive mechanism, probably propane, butane or acetylene. The explosive used by the bombers in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing was based on the FAE principle, using three tanks of bottled hydrogen gas to enhance the blast.

Mike Ruppert reported that the Israeli container and freight-shipping corporation Zim , who occupied several floors in the Twin Towers and is widely known to do extensive operational support work for the Mossad, vacated all their offices days before the attacks – and they vacated in violation of their lease.
