Single walled carbon nanotube, alumina and copper nanoparticles on convective mass transfer in the presence of base fluid (water) over a horizontal plate are investigated numerically. The governing partial differential equations with auxiliary conditions are reduced into the system of coupled ordinary differential equations via similarity transformation and it has been solved numerically using fourth or fifth order Runge–Kutta–Fehlbergmethod with shooting technique. The results display that the diffusion boundary layer thickness of the water based Cu and SWCNTs is stronger than Al2O3–water with increase of chemical reaction.
