An analysis has been carried out to study the two-dimensional free convective boundary layer MHD nanofluid flow past an inclined plate with heat generation, chemical reaction and radiation effects under convective boundary conditions. The partial differential equations describing the flow are coupled nonlinear. They have been reduced to nonlinear ordinary differential equations by utilizing a similarity transformation, which is then solved numerically with the aid of the Runge-Kutta-based shooting technique. Graphs depict the influence of different controlling factors on the velocity, temperature, and concentration profiles. Numerical findings for skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are reviewed for distinct physical parameter values. In a limited sense, there is a good correlation between the current study's results and those of the earlier published work.
