The nanoparticles convey noteworthy applications in many engineering and industrial systems like cooling and heat processes, thermal extrusion systems, heat exchangers, as an energy source, treatment of various diseases and chemotherapy. Owing to such importance of nanomaterials, various studies are presented for nanofluids with diverse flow features. This investigation discloses an unsteady flow of Cross nanofluid over periodically accelerated imbedded in porous space. The combined heat and mass transportation aspects of nanomaterials are entertained with applications of Buongiorno's model. Further, Cattaneo-Christov fluxes are mathematically implemented for investigating the diffusion aspect of heating and mass pattern. Additionally, the nonlinear on set of radiative distribution is followed. Referred to the suitable transformations, the independent variable in the governing system is reduced. The homotopy-based analytical expressions are obtained for set of flow parameters. The complete graphical exploration is visualized, for governing parameters, and scrutinized. The mass and heat transfer pattern has been inspected in the form of numerical data. It is perceived that velocity profile has decreasing tendency for enhancement in Weissenberg number and magneto-porous constant. The temperature and concentration profiles diminish with increase of thermal and solutal relaxation constants, respectively.
