Abstract
In this paper, we analyze the effects of chemical reaction and radiation on MHD mixed convective heat and mass transfer flow of a viscous fluid in a vertical channel with non-uniform concentration. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations by non-dimensional procedure and are then solved by using regular perturbation method. The velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are analyzed graphically for different variations in the parameters. The physical interpretation to these expressions is examined through graphs and tables for the shear stress and rate of heat transfer coefficients at the vertical channel walls.
