Thermal diffusion and variable thermal conductivity effects on unsteady magnetohydrodynamic (MHD), heat and mass transfer flow past an infinite vertical porous plate have been investigated and analyzed numerically. The resultant flow governing equations are resolved numerically by the finite-difference scheme of the Crank-Nicolson type implicit method. The non-dimensional velocity, fluid temperature, and species concentration distributions are conferred through graphs for different fluid parameters involved such as joule-heating parameter, suction parameter, chemical reaction parameter, radiation parameter, etc. The coefficient of skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number were tabulated. The concentration of the fluid rises with an increase in Soret number, whereas the Sherwood number reduces due to its increase.
