The unsteady stagnation-point flow of a hybrid nanofluid over a stretching/shrinking sheet embedded in a porous medium with mass transpiration and chemical reactions is considered. The momentum and mass transfer problems are combined to form a system of partial differential equations, which is converted into a set of ordinary differential equations via similarity transformation. These ordinary differential equations are solved analytically to obtain the solution for velocity and concentration profiles in exponential and hypergeometric forms, respectively. The concentration profile is obtained for four different cases namely constant wall concentration, uniform mass flux, general power law wall con-centration and general power law mass flux. The effect of different physical parameters such as Darcy number (Da-1), mass transpiration parameter (VC), stretching/shrinking parameter (d), chemical reaction parameter (β) and Schmidt number (SC) velocity and concentration profile is examined. Results show that, the axial velocity will decreases as the shrinking sheet parameter increases, regardless of whether the suction or injection case is examined. The concentration decreases with an increase in the shrinking sheet parameter and the chemical reaction rate parameter.
