Great Matt! Just researching about how arsenic was first found.
How are you doing today John?
So far what I know about the element is, the atomic number is 33 and that arsenic compounds were first mined by the early Chinese, Greek, and Egyptian civilizations.
Well yes it's compounds were first mined but the arsenic itself was first identified by Albertus Magnus, a German alchemist, in 1250. Also the name arsenic comes from the Persian word zarnikh meaning yellow orpiment.
Arsenic is a well-known poison which is used as a doping agent in semiconductors for solid-state devices.
This means that it is used as an altering substance that can conduct electricity between electronics.
One of the most important and common uses of arsenic is the preservation of wood.
Well John good talk! Hope you feel you learned more about the element Arsenic!
