History

History
The element Phosphorus was discovered by Hennig Brand in year 1669 in Germany. Phosphorus derived its name from from the Greek word phoosphoros, 'carrying light'
The element Cobalt was discovered by Georg Brandt in year 1735 in Sweden. Cobalt derived its name derived its name from from the German word Kobold, meaning 'goblin'
