The present study is to investigate the effect of the chemical reaction parameter on stagnation point flow of magnetohydrodynamics field past an exponentially stretching sheet by considering a nanofluid. The problem is governed by governing coupled nonlinear partial differential equations with appropriate boundary conditions. The transformed non-dimensional and coupled governing ordinary differential equations are solved numerically using the fourth order Adams-Bashforth Moulton method. The effects of various dimensionless parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration fields are studied and then the results are presented in both tabular and graphical forms.
