Carl Setterberg



He was a German chemist who (in Bunsen's laboratory) first isolated metallic Cesium in 1882 by electrolysis of the cyanide in the presence of barium cyanide. The name of Cesium derives from the Latin caesius for "sky blue color", which was the color of the caesium line in the spectroscope.
