RNT’s patented NanoFoil® is a new class of nano-engineered material, fabricated by vapor-depositing thousands of alternating nanoscale layers of aluminum (Al) and nickel (Ni). When activated by a small pulse of local energy from electrical, optical or thermal sources, the foil reacts to precisely deliver localized heat up to temperatures of 1500°C in fractions (thousandths) of a second.

Foil implies no organic binder. This was not a foil, it was a polymeric coating containing iron oxides, an aluminosilicate, and other ingredients. Had Jones not botched the analysis, you would have found out what it contained. He did and you now have no way of knowing.
Bad science = bad results

pteridine can talk crap about the tested material all day, and the fact of a eutectic reaction eating through WTC steel is still going to be in appendix C of FEMA's report, just waiting for someone to figure out what exactly that stuff was on the surface of the column, how it got there, and why it was so able to eat holes through the steel.
For pteridine we just have to wait, until enough authorities realize what this stuff is, so that he may feel comfortable changing his opinion to fit everyone else's.

You really do sound like a chemist, not knowing the difference in energy release between butter and explosives.
