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 Selenium was discovered by Jöns Jakob Berzelius in year 1817 in Sweden. Selenium derived its name derived its name from from the Greek selene, meaning 'moon'
