The nucleosynthesis of elements beyond iron is dominated by the S and r processes. However, a small amount of stable isotopes on the proton-rich side cannot be made by neutron capture and is thought to be produced by photodisintegration reactions on existing seed nuclei in the so-called ``p process``. So far most of the p-process reactions are not yet accessible by experimental techniques and have to be inferred from statistical Hauser-Feshbach model calculations. The parametrization of these models has to be constrained by measurements on stable proton-rich nuclei. A series of (n, gamma) activation measurements on p nuclei, related by detailed balance to the. respective photodisintegrations, was carried out at the Karlsruhe Van de Graaff accelerator using the Li-7 (p, n) Be-7 source for simulating a Maxwellian neutron distribution of kT = 25 keV. We present here preliminary results of our extended measuring program in the mass range between A = 74 and A = 132, including first experimental (n, gamma) cross-sections of Se-71, Sr-84, Te-120 and Ba-132, and an improved value for Ba-130. In all cases we find perfect agreement with the recommended MACS predictions from the Bao et al. compilation.
