Title of the idea: 2-Tribythylamonium-1-ethanol: Ethylene Oxide Equivalent
Author of the idea: Ramesha
Email of the author
Key words for search: Ethylene oxide, tributylamine, chloro ethanol
Explain briefly the idea

Ethylene oxide is difficult to obtain in small quantity. In such case this reagent can be used. While doing the reaction, there could be loss of 1 mole of Grignard. However, ease of doing the reaction makes this reagent a better option.

Why do you think this idea will work? Ammonium salt is the driving force for the elimination of ethylene oxide. Therefore it is feasible.
Do you have any experimental proof? No
