Abstract: In this paper we analyse the effect of chemical reaction and thermal radiation on parabolic MHD flow past an infinite vertical plate with variable temperature a uniform magnetic field with variable temperature The non-dimensional equations governing the above flow characteristics are solved by using Laplace Transformation and the effect of different physical parameters on the velocity profile, temperature profile and concentration profile are illustrated graphically
