Analytical solutions are reported for an unsteady hydro-magnetic laminar mixed convective boundary layer flow of an incompressible and electrically conducting fluid along an infinite vertical plate embedded in the porous medium with chemical reactions. The dimensionless governing equations for this investigation are solved analytically using the perturbation technique. The expressions are obtained for velocity, temperature and concentration fields. The results for various parameters are shown graphically, and the skin friction coefficient and the rate of heat transfer are also derived.
