This investigation is undertaken to study the effects of heat source and radiation absorption on unsteady hydro-magnetic heat and mass transfer flow of a dusty viscous incompressible, electrically conducting fluid between two vertical heated, porous, parallel plates in the presence of chemical reaction under the influence of a transverse applied magnetic field. Initially, the channel walls as well as the dusty fluid are assumed to be at the same temperature and the mass is assumed to be present at low level concentration so that it is constant everywhere. It is also assumed that the dusty particles are non-conducting, solid, spherical and equal in sizes, these are uniformly and symmetrically distributed in the flow field. The governing equations are solved analytically using the perturbation technique. Non-dimensional velocity, temperature, concentration and skin-friction are discussed through graphs for various physical parameters entering into the problem. It is found that velocity of the dusty particles is less than that of the dusty fluid and the skin-friction of the dusty particles is greater than that of the dusty fluid. It is observed that the temperature is minimal at the centre of the channel and decreases towards the plates whereas the concentration is minimal at the center of the channel but increases towards the plates.
