I wonder how can I implement non-Arrhenius form reaction rate?

For example, the reaction rate of M+N->P+Q is expressed as k=A*f(T), in which T is temperature, and f is an arbitrary function.

Thanks for your help.

If it's not an Arrhenius type, then you cannot write it in Chemkin format. Thus, it's not possible to use a Chemkin reader. You should write your own code to calculate the reaction rates. You can still use Chemkin for your thermodynamic model.
