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 Vanadium was discovered by Andrés Manuel del Río in year 1801 in Mexico and Sweden. Vanadium derived its name derived its name from from Vanadis, an Old Norse name for the Scandinavian goddess Freyja
