This communication addresses the influence of nonlinear thermal radiation on magneto hydrodynamic Maxwell fluid flow past a linearly stretching surface with heat and mass transfer. The effects of heat generation/absorption and chemical reaction are taken into account. At first, we converted the governing partial differential equations into nonlinear ordinary differential equations with the help of suitable similarity transformations and solved by using Runge-Kutta based shooting technique. Further, the effects of various physical parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration fields were discussed thoroughly with the help of graphs obtained by using bvp5c MATLAB package. In view of many engineering applications we also computed the friction factor, heat and mass transfer coefficients and presented them in tables. Results indicate that an increase in thermal buoyancy parameter enhances the fluid velocity but suppresses the temperature. Deborah number have tendency to reduce the fluid velocity and mass transfer rate. It is also perceived that temperature ratio parameter has the propensity to enrich the fluid temperature.
