manjunath88 is on a distinguished road

I am trying to introduce the following endothermic reaction :

CO2 + H2 = CO + H2O and some other reaction similar to this. And as far as I know, openfoam always considers these reactions as exothermic ! I am using the usual reactiongFoam solver and my chemkin looks something like this :

        type         reversibleArrheniusReaction;
        reaction     "CO2 + H2 = CO + H2O";
        A            1e+10;
        beta         0;
        Ta           7553.524;
Any idea as to how I could use them as endothermic ? or is it already taken care of by openfoam ?
