What is the only continent with a chemical element named for it?

Answer:

EUROPE

Europium is a chemical element with the symbol Eu. Europium is a ductile metal with a hardness similar to that of lead. Europium was isolated in 1901 and is named after the continent of Europe. Europium has no significant biological role and is relatively non-toxic compared to other heavy metals. Europium is one of the rarest of rare earth elements on Earth. French chemist, Eugene-Anatole Demarcay, is typically credited with the discovery of the element as he ultimately produced a relatively pure form of the rare earth metal in 1901.
