   The aim of the present study is to investigate the effects of viscous dissipation and chemical reaction on stagnation point flow of electrical magnetohydrodynamic (EMHD) field over stretching sheet by considering micro nanofluid. Contribution of magnetic field is considered in the flow field, whereas the heat convection is associated with the Brownian motion, thermophoresis and viscous dissipation and chemical reaction is incorporated in the mass diffusion. The problem is governed by coupled non-linear Partial Differential Equations (PDE) with appropriate boundary conditions. The transformed non-dimensional and coupled governing Partial Differential Equations are solved numerically using Adam’s – Moulton method along with shooting technique. The effects of the various dimensionless parameters entering the problem on velocity, microrotation, temperature, and concentration fields are studied.
