In this paper, steady 2-D MHD free convective boundary-layer flows of an electrically conducting nanofluid over a non-linear stretching sheet taking into account the chemical reaction and heat source/sink are investigated. The governing equations are transformed into a system of non-linear ODE using suitable similarity transformations. Analytical solution for the dimensionless velocity, temperature, concentration, skin friction coefficient, heat and mass transfer rates are obtained by using homotopy analysis method. The obtained results show that the flow field is substantially influenced by the presence of chemical reaction, radiation, and magnetic field.
