The present paper deals with the effects of thermophoresis and the homogeneous chemical reactions of first order on magneto-hydrodynamic mixed convective flow past a heated inclined permeable flat plate in the presence of heat generation or absorption considering the viscous dissipation and Joule heating. The resulting governing partial differential equations are transformed into non-dimensional ordinary differential equations using the usual similarity transformations and then solved numerically by applying the Nachtsheim-Swigert shooting iteration technique together with the sixth-order Runge-Kutta integration scheme. Comparison with previously published work is performed and very good agreement is obtained. A parametric study of the governing parameters is carried out and the results are displayed graphically. The results show that viscous drag, rate of heat transfer, and wall deposition flux decreases as the angle of inclination increases. It is also observed that due to the presence of the first-order homogeneous chemical reaction, the concentration decreases with increasing values of the chemical reaction parameter.
