History

History
The element Silicon was discovered by Jöns Jacob Berzelius in year 1824 in Sweden. Silicon derived its name from from the Latin silex, 'flint' (originally silicium)
The element Thallium was discovered by William Crookes in year 1861 in United Kingdom. Thallium derived its name derived its name from from the Greek thallos, 'green twig'
