History

History
The element Molybdenum was discovered by Carl Wilhelm Scheele in year 1781 in Sweden. Molybdenum derived its name from from the Greek word molybdos meaning 'lead'
The element Indium was discovered by Ferdinand Reich in year 1863 in Germany. Indium derived its name derived its name from from indigo
