An unsteady flow and melting heat transfer of a nanofluid over a stretching sheet was numerically studied by considering the effect of chemical reaction and thermal radiation. The governing non-linear partial differential equations describing the flow problem are reduced to a system of non-linear ordinary differential equations using the similarity transformations and solved numerically using the Runge–Kutta–Fehlberg fourth–fifth order method. Numerical results for concentration, temperature and velocity profiles are shown graphically and discussed for different physical parameters. Effect of pertinent parameters on momentum, temperature and concentration profiles along with local Sherwood number, local skin-friction coefficient and local Nusselt number are well tabulated and discussed.
