- The present paper focuses on free convective boundary layer flow of a radiating nanofluid along a non-linear stretching sheet. The model used for the nanofluid incorporates the effects of Brownian motion and thermophoresis. The governing boundary layer equations are reduced into ordinary differential equations by a similarity transformation. The transformed equations are solved numerically using Rungekutta fourth order method along with shooting technique. The numerical predictions have been compared with existing information in the literature  &  and good agreement is obtained. The effects of various parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are presented graphically and discussed. Numerical values of skin friction coefficient, Nusselt numbers and the Sherwood numbers are presented in tabular form.
