The bimolecular reaction rate of molecules constrained to a surface is obtained in a simple form. The solution applies for any central force potential and for arbitrary mean free path, giving in the limit of high friction the solution to the diffusion equation with its logarithmic dependence on surface density and in the limit of low friction the result of canonical variational transition state theory.
