    ABSTRACT: This problem presents the effects of thermal radiation and chemical reaction on MHD unsteady mass transfer flow past a semi-infinite vertical porous plate embedded in a porous medium in a slip flow regime with variable suction. A magnetic field of uniform strength is assumed to be applied transversely to the direction of the main flow. Perturbation technique is applied to transform the non-linear coupled governing partial differential equations in dimensionless form into a system of ordinary differential equations. The resulting equations are solved analytically and the solutions for the velocity, temperature and concentration fields are obtained. The effects of various flow parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration fields are presented graphically. For different values of the flow parameters involved in the problem, the numerical calculations for the Nusselt number, Sherwood number and skin-friction co-efficient at the plate are performed in tabulated form. It is seen that chemical reaction causes the velocity field and concentration field to decrease and the chemical reaction decreases the rate of viscous drag at the plate.
