An analysis of visco-elastic free convective transient MHD flow over a vertical porous plate through porous media in presence of radiation and chemical reaction with heat and mass transfer is presented. A transverse variable suction velocity is applied on the porous plate. The equations governing the fluid flow, heat and mass transfer are solved by applying multiple perturbation technique. The expressions for transient velocity, temperature, species concentration and non-dimensional skin friction at the plate are obtained and the expressions for transient velocity and non-dimensional skin friction at the plate are illustrated graphically to observe the visco-elastic effect in combination of other flow parameters involved in the solution.
