Magneto-hydrodynamic free convective heat and mass transfer of a viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting and chemically-reacting fluid adjacent to a vertical stretching sheet embedded in a saturated porous medium in the presence of a thermal radiation effect are investigated. The sheet is linearly stretched with uniform constant of temperature and concentration. The governing partial differential equations are transferred into a system of ordinary differential equations, which are solved numerically using a fourth order Runge-Kutta scheme with the shooting method. The effects of various parameters entering into the problem have been examined on the velocity and temperature profiles as well as the skin-friction coefficient, and Nusselt and Sherwood numbers are presented graphically and in tabular form.

Keywords: heat and mass transfer; porous medium; MHD flow; chemical reaction
