****Nanoparticles Generate Supersonic Shock Waves to Target Cancer
January 16, 2008 By Lisa Zyga
The team of researchers, a collaboration from the University of Missouri-Columbia (UMC) and the U.S. Army, hope that this nano-sized "smart bomb" can target drug delivery to cancer cells, and leave healthy cells unharmed. Their study is published in a recent issue of Applied Physics Letters.
"In conventional explosives, shock waves are generated during detonation," she says. "In nanothermites, fast propagating chemical reactions can create shock waves without detonation." Generating shock waves without detonation is the key to this technology, she says.

Silicon link from BATTELLE in 9/11 nanothermite AND anthrax attacks:
1/24/10 from The Wall Street Journal
Silicon Also Discovered In 2001 Anthrax Attacks
Silicon was used in the 1960s to weaponize anthrax. Through an elaborate process, anthrax spores were coated with the substance to prevent them from clinging together so as to create a lethal aerosol. But since weaponization was banned by international treaties, research anthrax no longer contains silicon.
According to the FBI lab, 1.4% of the powder in the Leahy letter was silicon. "This is a shockingly high proportion," explained Stuart Jacobson, an expert in small particle chemistry. "It is a number one would expect from the deliberate weaponization of anthrax, but not from any conceivable accidental contamination."
The Livermore scientists had tried 56 times to replicate the high silicon content without any success. Even though they added increasingly high amounts of silicon to the media, they never even came close to the 1.4% in the attack anthrax. Most results were an order of magnitude lower, with some as low as .001%.
...the silicon in the anthrax could have been added via a large fermentor - which Battelle and other labs use"
"Battelle advertises their specialization in nanocomposite coatings."

"Development of chemical process to produce nano-sized reactants and nano-sized thermite mixtures (e.g Sol-gel, Xerogel, etc.) has been tested at Lawrence Livermore National Lab (LLNL), Los Alamos National Lab (LANL) and Texas Tech University (TTU)."
"The precise particle size control of nano-thermites is leading researchers to develop highly-tunable energy release mechanisms."
