Default implement thermodynamic database for chemkin with ionic species and electron

CFDger is on a distinguished road

I am trying to implement a 11 species (O2, O, NO, N, N2, NO+, N2+, O2+, O+, N+, E) reaction model into Ansys Fluent but I receive the following error message:
"Thermo data of species e was not found, or species cp type not handledError at host: Memory allocation failed during Chemkin mechanism import"
The source for my therm.dat file is Burcat's Thermodynamic Database (7 coefficient polynomials for cp(T)):
Obviously this doesn't contain information regarding the electron. So my question is how to set up a simulation with an electron and ionic species in Ansys Fluent?

Source of kinetics input file: Nonequilibrium Hypersonic Aerothermodynamics, C. Park (1990)

Thank you!
