From Basic Principles to Molecular Electronics
Preface ( book / page 5 ) Electrons in molecules . . . Both objects—electron and molecule—have a long, rich, and complex history. Both words began to be used as elusive concepts in the nineteenth century before gaining well-established scientific status at the turn of the twentieth century. Several tens of years of common endeavour, failures, and achievements by chemists and physicists, based on experimental and theoretical work, were necessary to reach consensus. The word ‘electron’ (from the Greek élektron, amber) was proposed by Stoney in 1894, to name the elementary negative charge of the particle, whereas ‘molecule’ comes from the diminutive of the Latin moles (mass), introduced in modern Latin by Gassendi as molecula.
