No, that's not the way chemistry works. Gordon Ross explains it very well here...
Now I will never claim to be good at chemistry but I know that if I leave margarine, flour, sugar and fruit in a cupboard, when I next open the cupboard I will not find a fruit crumble. Some mechanism is required to convert the ingredients. Similarly, if I take these same ingredients, set them alight and throw them out the window, I still will not get my fruit crumble. The mechanism must have some order

I have one very large elephant in the room problem with the controlled demolition theory. The following clip is of a large building that's not identical to the trade towers but it's still a tall building.
First of all, the noise! I don't think anyone from that day was debating whether or not they heard explosions.
Second, observe how the building collapses. It starts at the base and demolishes from the bottom up. Gravity and the weight of the building does the majority of the work.
WTC 7 looks like a controlled demolition. The twin towers don't. Unless a new and revolutionary technique was used on two towers that day and it went flawlessly, only to never be used again, then I simply can't accept the controlled demolition theory, regardless of finding anything.
I don't know the how or why, and I don't think the general public ever will, but in regards to the controlled demolition theory, nope!

Why do the same people push fraudulent and debunked claims of thermite that would be nearly impossible to create a CD system out of?
Would you like to cite a credible WTC dust thermite study, and why it is credible?
Looks like the papers authors were trying to "prove" something instead of TESTING a hypothesis and ignored the fact that their results completely did NOT match what they expected.
The Energy peak which they claim is a violent sudden release of energy is a spread of 60 degrees or more and as the DSC would normally raise the temperature by about 10 deg/min then the Sudden release took at least 6 minutes to happen.
As you already mentioned, the fact that they put the whole chip in the DSC and not just the red layer meant their results would have been useless right from the start. Others have also pointed out is the WRONG test to do to determine composition and why Millette did NOT do that test.
