Editor-In-Chief Quits Over ‘Active Thermitic Material’

Professor Marie-Paule Pileni has resigned as editor-in-chief of the Open Chemical Physics Journal over the publication of the Niels Harrit et al paper, Active Thermitic Material Discovered in Dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center Catastrophe, which she says she was unaware of. In an interview with videnskab.dk (Danish science news service) she said she believes the publication was “political”, although she did not provide any evidence of that, or find any fault with the science behind the paper.
