Thermophoresis particle deposition with chemical reaction on Magnetohydrodynamic flow of an electrically conducting fluid over a porous stretching sheet in the presence of a uniform transverse magnetic field with variable stream conditions is investigated using scaling group transformation. Starting from Navier-Stokes equations and using scaling group transformations, the governing equations are obtained in the form of differential equations. The fluid viscosity is assumed to vary as a linear function of temperature. It is found that the decrease in the temperature-dependent fluid viscosity makes the velocity to decrease with the increasing distance of the stretching sheet. At a particular point of the sheet the fluid velocity decreases with the decreasing viscosity but the temperature increases in this case. Impact of thermophoresis particle deposition in the presence of chemical reaction plays an important role on the concentration boundary layer. The results thus obtained are presented graphically and discussed. Thermophoresis particle deposition in the presence of chemical reaction has a substantial effect on the flow field. Thermophoresis is expected to alter the concentration boundary layer significantly. Present investigation plays a predominant role in the applications of science and technology.
