This is not what has been suggested to you, nor does it sound terribly
realistic. How can one element of a system be controlled by a thermostat, and
the other not? If these two species interact (i.e. experience collisions), then
it seems to me that they need to exchange energy in some way.
Note, too, that now two people have asked you about your charges on N2. It
seems like an odd physical model. In the future, you would benefit from posting
this information, as well as a complete .mdp file for what you're doing.
