The steady laminar viscous incompressible nanofluid flow of mixed convection and mass transfer about an isothermal vertical flat plate embedded in Darcy porous medium in the presence of magnetic field and viscous dissipation is analyzed. The governing partial differential equations are converted into ordinary differential equations by similarity transformations. The coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations are linearized by Quasi-linearization technique. The linear ordinary differential equations are solved by using implicit finite difference scheme with the help of C-programming. Numerical calculations are carried out for different values of dimensionless parameter such as magnetic field, mixed convection parameter, inertia parameter, buoyancy ratio parameter, Eckert number, Prandtl number, Brownian motion parameter and Thermophoresis parameter. The temperature and concentration profiles increase with the increase of thermophoresis parameter. It is noticed that with the increase of Brownian motion parameter the temperature profile increases whereas concentration profile decreases. On the other hand, the Local Nusselt number and the local Sherwood number also presented and analyzed.
