Interesting Facts about the Origin and Meaning of the element name Europium
What are the origins of the word Europium ?
The name originates as it was named after the continent of Europe
Facts about the Classification of the Element Europium
Europium classified as an element in the Lanthanide series as one of the "Rare Earth Elements" which can located in Group 3 elements of the Periodic Table and in the 6th and 7th periods. The Rare Earth Elements are divided into the Lanthanide and Actinide series. The elements in the Lanthanide series closely resemble lanthanum, and one another, in their chemical and physical properties. Their compounds are used as catalysts in the production of petroleum and synthetic products.

Facts and Info about the element Europium - IUPAC and the Modern Standardised Periodic Table
The Standardised Periodic Table in use today was agreed by the International Union of Pure Applied Chemistry, IUPAC, in 1985 which includes the Europium element. The famous Russian Scientist, Dimitri Mendeleev, perceived the correct classification method of "the periodic table" for the 65 elements which were known in his time. Europium was first found by Paul Emile Lecoq de Boisbaudran in 1890. But its discovery is credited to the French chemist Eugene-Antole Demarçay in 1901. The Standardised Periodic Table now recognises more periods and elements than Dimitri Mendeleev knew in his day but still all fitting into his concept of the "Periodic Table" in which Europium is just one element that can be found.
