History

History
The element Americium was discovered by Glenn T. Seaborg in year 1944 in United States. Americium derived its name from from The Americas, as the element was first synthesized on the continent, by analogy with europium
The element Nickel was discovered by Axel Fredrik Cronstedt in year 1751 in Sweden. Nickel derived its name derived its name from from Swedish kopparnickel, containing the German word Nickel, 'goblin'
