In the present paper we investigate double diffusion effects on mixed convective heat and mass transfer over a Newtonian vertical plate. Diffusion and chemical reaction terms are considered in the energy and concentration equations. A similarity transformation was used to convert governing non linear partial differential equations into ordinary. The dimensionless governing equations are solved numerically by using fourth-order Runge–Kutta integration scheme along with shooting technique. Detailed results for various physical parameters like velocity, temperature and concentration fields as well as the heat and mass transfer rates have been presented. In the absence of Magnetic and double diffusion effects our results are good in agreement with the results in the literature.
