The flow problem presented in the paper is boundary-layer flow of nanofluids over a moving surface in the presence of Diffusion thermo(Dufour), radiation absorption and chemical reaction. The numerical solutions of the boundary layer equations are assumed of oscillatory type. Constant velocity U0 is considered. Temperature and concentration are assumed to be fluctuating with time harmonically from a constant mean at the plate surface. We have solved the model equations using two-term perturbation technique. Comprehensive numerical computations are conducted for various values of the parameters describe the flow characteristics and results are illustrated graphically. Skin-friction coefficient and Nusselt number are discussed in detail. The findings of this investigation may be useful in catalysis, biomedicine, magnetic resonance imaging, data storage and environmental remediation. Hence, the subject of nanofluids is of great interest worldwide for basic and applied research.
