I have plenty of the first one in my lab, but I need the carboxylic acid, and would be very nice if we don't have to buy it... So, after an evenig of SciFinder searching, I found nothing on this. Does anyone know if this reaction is possible without oxidizing iron/compound decomposition?

Thanks in advance
