The development of a user-friendly reusable laboratory equipment for the delivery of sensitive reagents and catalysts is described. The tightness of these Teflon Magnetic Stirring Capsules (TMSC) is ensured by the magnetic force and release of the reagent inside the solution is triggered by adjusting the stirring rate so that the centrifuge force exceeds the magnetic force. They can be loaded with several chemicals at the same time and do operate across a broad range of temperatures. The inertness of Teflon facilitates reaction purification.
