It is offered here the procedure of utilization of gas mask or respirator charge when operation term is expired. This technique enables to get not only high quality active carbon but also its oxidized variety that has properties of polyfunctional carboxylic cationite and catalyst decomposition of hydrogen peroxide (catalysis activity). Structure-sorption properties of the obtained adsorbents are listed below.
