Richard Brown's Biography

Richard Brown, Professor

Professor Brown received a B.Sc. in Chemistry from the University of Southampton in 1990, where he continued his studies as a PhD student working on the synthesis of the polyether ionophore antibiotic salinomycin under the guidance of Professor Philip Kocienski. After a NATO postdoctoral fellowship with Professor Clayton Heathcock at the University of California Berkeley (1994-1996) and a six-month sabbatical at Pfizer Central Research in the UK, he joined the Chemistry staff at the University of Southampton. Richard held a Royal Society University Research Fellowship from 1996 to 2004 and was promoted to Professor in 2010. He is an organic chemist with research interests including natural product synthesis, new methodologies, and technologies. Recently he has worked closely with Professor Derek Pletcher to develop electroorganic synthesis in extended path-length flow cells. Together with Cambridge Reactor Design, they have introduced the Ammonite Electrolysis Cells for laboratory flow electrosynthesis on a preparative scale (100s mg to 100s of g). He is author and co-author of >100 journal and book articles and several patents.
