The numerical simulations are performed to investigate the electro-osmotic peristaltic flow of Prandtl fluid in the presence of tiny particles in a planner channel. The analysis is performed in the presence of slip effects, magnetic force and Joule heating. The governing nonlinear boundary value problem along with nonlinear boundary conditions is solved numerically using Keller Box method as well as numerical shooting technique by using the MATLAB tool. The solution validity is also ensured by computing the solution with BVP4C solver. The results claimed from analysis convey that concentration profile declined with concentration slip while an increasing trend for concentration has been noted for Soret number. The presence of slip factor reduces the magnitude of skin friction coefficient. With increasing the Grashof number and in the presence of electric forces, the temperature profile reduces. The Nusselt number increases with electro-osmotic parameter while reverse observations are predicted for Sherwood number.
