The aim of the present study is to investigate viscoelastic fluid in a fixed plane, taking the effect of heat and mass transfer into account. The resulting equations have been solved analytically using perturbation technique. Solutions are obtained for velocity, temperature and concentration distributions, as well as the Skin friction, Nussetl number and Sherwood number. The influence of various parameters such as the thermal Grashof number, Hartmann number, mass Grashof number, thermal Radiation, Schmidt number, Prandtl number, permeability parameter, frequency parameter and chemical reaction parameter on the flow field is examined. It is observed that the velocity increases with the increase in Gc, Gr and R and it decreases with the increase in ω , M, K, k, Sc, Pr andε . Temperature decreases with increase in Pr and concentration decreases with the increase in Sc and k.
