ABSTRACT 
Simultaneous heat and mass transfer in unsteady free convection flow with thermal radiation and thermal diffusion past an impulsively started infinite vertical porous plate subjected to a strong magnetic field is presented. The dimensionless governing equations for this investigation are solved analytically using two terms harmonic and nonharmonic functions. The influence of various parameters on the convectively cooled or convectively heated plate in the laminar boundary layer are established. An analysis of the effects of the parameters on the concentration, velocity and temperature profiles, as well as skin friction and the rates of mass and heat transfer is done with the aid of graphs and tables.
