Baeyer–Villiger Oxidation Promoted by Noncovalent Interactions

The relative complexity of noncovalent interactions has made them challenging to study. Nevertheless, theory and modelling have now reached the stage that allows their physical origins to be explained and reliable insight to be gained into their effects on chemical transformations. This chapter discusses the influence of coordination and noncovalent interactions in Baeyer–Villiger oxidations. These attractive forces can be powerful tools in the formation/stabilization of intermediates and in controlling the product outcome of a reaction.
