Default chemkinToFoam not working with therm.dat

SOFC is on a distinguished road

I have been trying to convert the therm.dat copied and pasted from (more particularly reaction nš 7: Surface Reactions: Methane reforming kintetcs within a Ni-YSZ SOFC anode support), to the foam standard file by using chemkinToFoam. However, this does not seem to work. The following error appears:

while reading thermodynamic data specie phase on line 3
expected <char> (A1) but found '" " 0 300.00 5000.00 1000.00 1'

From function int Foam::chemkinReader::lex()
in file chemistryReaders/chemkinReader/chemkinLexer.L at line 1516.

Someone suggested in a previous (very old) thread to make use the dos2unix command, but this doesn't change anything.

Any idea on how to solve this issue?

Best regards.
