This work is focused on the numerical study of thermodiffusion, inclination of the plate, order of chemical reaction, Diffusion-thermo and thermal radiation effects on a steady magnetohydrodynamic convective flow over an inclined plate in a porous medium under the influence of viscous dissipation along with the application of heat generation/ absorption effects. The partial differential equations governing the fluid flow are transformed into coupled non dimensional ordinary differential equations with the help of similarity transformations. Suitable codes in MATLAB’s built in solver bvp4c, which is a highly accurate and efficient solver of MATLAB, are developed to solve these coupled ordinary differential equations numerically. The behaviour of the fluid velocity, temperature and species concentration for variations in the various thermo-physical parameters are illustrated via graphs. From the numerical results it is evident that the heat and mass transfer of the fluid are significantly influenced by the order of chemical reaction, thermal radiation, inclination of the plate, Soret and Dufour effects. Results obtained in this paper may be useful in the field of chemical industries, chemical engineering, petroleum engineering. Gas separating instruments can be installed in big cities as an engineering application so that harmful pollutants can be removed which are present in small quantities mixed with air.
