I shared this trick with my colleagues when I returned to RMIT. A postdoc who works in the organometallics lab next door says that he uses parafilm backing paper for exactly this purpose. He does this so often in fact that those in his group routinely dispose of the parafilm just to use the paper. I laughed as I have often used the parafilm and thrown out the paper!
Therefore, I present three good options for compound weighing & transfer. Each may be suitable depending on quantity, properties and preciousness of the compound.
