History

History
The element Technetium was discovered by Emilio Segrè in year 1937 in Italy. Technetium derived its name from from the Greek tekhnètos meaning 'artificial'
The element Potassium was discovered by Humphry Davy in year 1807 in United Kingdom. Potassium derived its name derived its name from from New Latin potassa, 'potash' (kalium in Latin)
