this may be just the ticket.  could SIBX bee used instead for safety?  :)  i utfsed but didn't find this here before. hope it's new.

Application of IBX Method for the Synthesis of Ketones from Carboxylic Acids

H. R. Ferhat KARABULUT, Mesut KAC AN  Trakya University, Faculty of Art and Science, Department of Chemistry, 22030, Edirne-TURKEY e-mail: Hasan ¨OZYILDIRIM Trakya University, Faculty of Education, 22030, Edirne-TURKEY Received 30.09.2002

Methoxy phenyl propionic acid and some derivatives are converted to ketones using a new method. All classical methods to obtain ketones from carboxylic acids via acid halide consistently gave very low yields and regularly generated intermolecular cyclisation products or polymeric materials. However, high ketones yields are obtained by using the new IBX method.

Key Words: IBX (o-iodoxy benzoic acid), methoxy phenyl propionic acid, ketone, Oxidation.
