The element osmium has been discovered in combination with the element iridium in 1804 by British chemist Smithson Tennant when investigating insoluble residues of platinum ore which had been dissolved in here may remain cut .
Since osmium tetroxide smelled extremely pungent and chlorine-like, Tennant named it after the Greek term for smell, “osme”. In 1814, Jäns Jakob Berzelius assigned osmium the symbol Os.
