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 Sulfur was discovered by Ancient china in year 500 BC in unknown place. Sulfur derived its name derived its name from from the Latin word sulphur, 'fire and brimstone'
