This paper presents the effects of chemical reaction on MHD mixed convection heat and mass transfer of an incompressible dusty viscous fluid through a vertical porous plate with temperature dependent viscosity and thermal conductivity in the presence of suction. The fluid viscosity and thermal conductivity are assumed to be vary as inverse linear function of temperature. The governing partial differential equations are reduced to a system of ordinary differential equations by introducing similarity transformations. The non-linear similarity equations are solved numerically by applying the Runge-Kutta method of fourth order with shooting technique. The numerical results are presented graphically to illustrate influence of different values of the parameters on the velocity, temperature and concentration profiles. Skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are also computed and presented in tabular form.
