In this study, MHD mixed convective flow of Maxwell nanofluid past a porous vertical stretching sheet in the presence of chemical reaction is investigated. The governing partial differential equations with the corresponding boundary conditions are reduced to a set of ordinary differential equations via Lie group analysis. Numerical solutions of these equations are obtained by Runge-Kutta fourth order method along with shooting technique and the results obtained for different governing flow parameters are drawn graphically and their effects on velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are discussed. The values of skin-friction coefficient, Nusselt number coefficient and Sherwood number coefficient are presented in table. A comparison with previously reported data is made and an excellent agreement is noted.
