Europium was first found by Paul Émile Lecoq de Boisbaudran in 1890.

In 1896, French chemist Eugène-Antole Demarçay identified spectroscopic lines in ‘samarium' caused by europium.

He successfully isolated europium in 1901 using repeated crystallizations of samarium magnesium nitrate. Europium was named after Europe 78 1735 Antonio de Ulloa South America From the Spanish word "platina" meaning "silver"

Europium is considered to be mildly toxic
Europium is the most reactive rare earth element
Europium is used in the manufacture of fluorescent glass.

It is also used in the anti-counterfeiting phosphors in Euro banknotes.

Europium-doped plastic has been used as a laser material.

Europium isotopes are good neutron absorbers and are used in nuclear reactor control rods.
