Numerical investigation is undertaken to study the effects of thermo-diffusion and Hall current on unsteady magneto-hydrodynamic convective flow of a viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting, radiating and heat absorbing fluid past an exponentially accelerated infinite vertical porous plate with ramped temperature in the presence of chemical reaction. A uniform magnetic field is applied transversely in the direction of the flow. The governing system of partial differential equations along with initial and boundary conditions is transformed to dimensionless form and then solved by employing finite element method. The impact of various flow parameters on the primary and secondary fluid velocities, fluid temperature and fluid concentration as well as shear stress, rate of heat and mass transfer at the plate are displayed through the graphs and tables. It can be observed that the temperature profiles are slower in case of ramped temperature plate than that of isothermal plate.
