This analysis concentrates on mixed convective unsteady two-dimensional, viscous hydro-magnetic Williamson nanofluid flow with heat, and mass transport toward a stretchable rotating disk with suction/injection and joule heating. In addition, convective and zero mass flux conditions are implemented at the boundary to study the flow characteristics. The converted coupled nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs) are tackled utilizing a semi-analytical technique known as Optimal Homotopy Analysis Method (OHAM). The obtained outcomes are illustrated graphically to anticipate the features of the governing terms affecting the flow model. The surface skin friction, heat, and mass transport rates are deduced and discussed in detail. The validation of the present article is verified and converges to earlier published statistics. Interestingly, analysis reveals that suction/injection parameter on axial and radial velocity profiles are quite the opposite and is identical in the case of thermal and concentration buoyancy parameter. Furthermore, the Weissenberg number dominates the flow movement; the unsteady parameter lessens the momentum and thermal boundary layer (BL) thickness.
