Berzelius is often credited as one of several founders of modern chemistry. He created a form of chemical notation that remains largely in force today, as well as discovering and naming the elements silicon, selenium, thorium, and cerium. He is credited with coining such terms as catalyst, polymer, and isomer. / "Periodically published bibliographies of chemistry that are of importance to historians include Jacob Berzelius' Jahres-Bericht uber die Fortschritte der physischen Wissenschaften in 20 volumes (Tubingen, 1822-41)..." – Andrew Hunter, Thornton and Tully's Scientific Books, Libraries and Collectors.
