The present study investigates heat and mass transfer effects on unsteady flow of a visco-elastic fluid over an infinite moving permeable plate in a saturated porous medium in the presence of a transverse magnetic field with chemical reaction and heat sink are studied. The governing equations are solved analytically by using general perturbation technique to obtain the expressions for velocity, micro-rotation, temperature and concentration. The result shows that the effect of the chemical reaction parameter and heat source parameter increases, with increasing in micro-rotation across the boundary layer while visco-elastic parameter decreases in the vicinity of the plate. With the aid of these, the expressions for skin-friction coefficient, Nusselt number and Sherwood numbers are presented in tabular form.
