In this study, we present an effective solution for the treatment of toxic gases, based on a photocatalytic process as destructive process. The aim of this investigation is to study the efficiency of the photocatalytic Filtering reactor (PFR), for the treatment of cyclohexane which is chosen as target pollutant of anti-gas cartridges of type 'A'. Indeed, the influence the input concentration (a range of Cyclohexane concentrations defined in the values and exposure limits recommended by the different French, European or American standards), residence time in reactor, and type of catalyst were studied in detail. In addition, the conversion rate was controlled under a respiratory flow (standards: ISO / DIS 8996). Moreover, a TiO2 deposed on optical fiber was evaluated in these conditions. The obtained results confirm that this configuration of the reactor can present an extremely promising route for individual protection device as an autonomous cartridge for a gas mask.
