There are several moments:
(1) Chemists are mostly interested in routes yielding products that are otherwise difficult to obtain. Oxidation of alcohols to ketones is a generic operation. There must be zillions of undiscovered methods to produce ketones, but there is no motivation to discover those, because the traditional methods work just as well.
(2) Peroxides are reactive/corrosive/hard to work with compounds. There are copious synthetic methods that use peroxides, but this is done only if milder methods are not known. For the same reason you don't put sodium perchlorate in your soup to enhance taste, since table salt has very similar effect on taste.
(3) You definitely can turn alcohol to a ketone using a peroxide (based on delta G), but the yield might be low, other reaction groups (such as double bond) might not survive and there is zero incentive to come up with yet another way to turn an alcohol to a ketone.
http://www.organic-chemistry.org/synthesis/C2O/ketones/oxidationsalcohols.shtm This page has 40+ common oxidation reactions to prepare a ketone from an alcohol. Choose less toxic alternative if you want.
Bottom line: you will not make a Nature paper with yet another oxidation of alcohol to a ketone. Thus, academia doesn't care. H2O2 is more dangerous (especially considering explosion hazard) than CrO3. Industry doesn't care.
