The purpose of this paper is to describe a two-dimensional catalytic surface reaction between two reactants, M and Pn: Pn + nM → nPM, where Pn is a polymer consisting of n identical atoms and M is a monomer. A classical example is the oxidation of carbon monoxide. In this case, M = CO and Pn = O2. We will consider the case where n, the polymer size, is large. Detailed proofs will be given in a forthcoming paper.
