The present article concentrates on the heat and mass transfer characteristics of a mixed convective flow of an electrically conducting nanofluid past a slender Riga plate in the presence of viscous dissipation and chemical reaction. The heat and mass transfer characteristics are analyzed by a zero nanoparticle mass flux and convective boundary conditions. The thermophoretic and Brownian aspects for nanoliquid are proposed using Buongiorno's relations. The similarity quantities are utilized to obtain dimensionless forms of flow field equations. The resulting coupled nonlinear equations associated with the constituted boundary assumptions analytically proceed via optimal homotopy analysis method (OHAM). Various parameters causing the change in distributions of velocity, temperature, and concentration are graphically explained with relevant physical references. One of the important observations of the present study is, for higher values of modified Hartmann number the velocity profile increases and temperature profile supreses and it is interesting to note that the contemporary numerical simulations offer confirmable accuracy in the existing literature, which authenticates the novelty of current investigation.
