History

History
The element Selenium was discovered by Jöns Jakob Berzelius in year 1817 in Sweden. Selenium derived its name from from the Greek selene, meaning 'moon'
The element Nitrogen was discovered by Daniel Rutherford in year 1772 in United Kingdom. Nitrogen derived its name derived its name from from the Greek word nitron and '-gen' meaning 'niter-forming'
