At the university of Edinburgh, in 1922 he determined the structure of eseroline and physostigmine.and worked on the synthesis of Neostigmine-Prostigmine for treatment of glaucoma. Based on substrate specificity he recognized two types of cholinesterases in horse organs. With Leslie Easson he studied the inhibition by Miotine. Stedman studied the stereo-selectivity of the optical isomers of epinephrin and related molecules.
