The objective of present problem is to investigate the effects of thermal diffusion, viscous dissipation, radiation and chemical reaction on a well-known non Newtonian fluid namely Kuvshinski fluid interaction on unsteady MHD flow over a vertical moving porous plate. The fluid is considered to be a gray, absorbing emitting but non scattering medium, and the Rosseland approximation is used to describe the radiative heat flux energy equation. The plate moves with constant velocity in the direction of fluid flow while the free stream velocity is assumed to follow the exponentially increasing small perturbation law. A uniform magnetic field acts perpendicular to the porous surface. The dimensionless governing equations are solved by using a simple perturbation law. The expressions for velocity, temperature and concentration are derived. With the aid of these the expressions for Skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are also derived. The effects of various material parameters on the above flow quantities are studied numerically with the help of figures and tables. It is observed that an increases in the Prandtl number results in a decreasing in temperature. An increase in Kr leads to decrease in both of concentration and velocity.
