In the present article, the effects of slip and homogeneous-heterogeneous chemical reaction on peristaltic pumping of a couple stress fluid through a permeable medium with complaint wall is studied as a model for transport phenomena occurring in the small intestine of human beings during digestion process. The mean effective coefficient of dispersion on simultaneous homo-geneous, heterogeneous chemical reactions has been derived through long wavelength assump-tion, and conditions of Taylor’s limit. The behaviors of key parameters on the mean effective dispersion coefficient have been examined through the graphs. It is found that slip and wall pa-rameters, and amplitude ratio favor the dispersion, while couples stress parameter resist the dis-persion in the small intestine during pumping in digestive frame work.
