In this work, the substituent effect of several alkyl groups (-CH3; -CH2CH3; -CH2CH2CH3; -CH(CH3)2; -C6H11; -C(CH3)3) in the rate-determining step of the catalyzed Baeyer-Villiger reaction of phenyl alkyl ketones with performic (PFA) and trifluoroperacetic (TFPAA) acids are studied in detail, within the density functional theory framework. Our results shown that the substituent effects are more pronounced in the migration step Gibbs free energy barriers than in the corresponding addition step, making possible a change in the rate-determining step (RDS) of the reaction, as observed in the oxidation of phenyl tert-butyl ketone with both peracids. The effect of the acid/peracid pair used is also analyzed. The comparison of BV reactions using different acid-peracid pairs demonstrates that the addition step is less susceptible to their natures due to the opposite effects of acid strength and nucleophilicity of the peracid. The effect of the acid-peracid pair is much more pronounced in the migration step because it only depends on the leaving ability of the acid, which in turn depends on its strength.
