A numerical analysis has been carried out to study the effects radiation and heat source/sink on the steady two dimensional magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) boundary layer flow of heat and mass transfer past a shrinking sheet with wall mass suction. In the dynamic system, a uniform magnetic field acts normal to the plane of flow. The governing partial differential equations are transformed into self-similar equations are solved by employing finite difference using the quasilinearization technique. From the analysis it is found that the velocity inside the boundary layer increases with increase of wall mass suction and magnetic field and accordingly the thickness of the momentum boundary layer decreases. The temperature decreases with Hartmann number, Prandtl number, and heat sink parameter and the temperature increases with heat source parameter, radiation parameter. The concentration decreases with an increase of Hartmann number, mass suction parameter, Schmidt number, chemical reaction parameter.
