Dr Russell's research centres upon synthetic methodology and natural products synthesis. Thermal cycloaddition reactions are being employed to synthesise AI-77-B, whilst photochemical methods are being used in approaches to stemodin, aphidicolin, fortamine and conduramine E. Asymmetric alkene-arene meta-photocycloadditions are being developed whilst chiral citrates have been developed for the syntheses of homocitrate, rhizoferrin and the side chains of homoharringtonine and anhydroharringtonine. He has headed the development of a Chemical Analysis Facility that encompasses laboratories for NMR, Mass Spectrometry, Thermal Analysis, Molecular Spectroscopy and X-ray Diffraction.
