An analytical Study of double diffusive MHD flow of a chemically reacting alumina nanofluid past an infinite flat plate is made. Laplace transform method is employed to determine the solution of the governing equation and its analysis showed that increase in both Reynolds number and Prandtl number bring about an increase in the rate of heat transfer coefficient. Skin friction is shown to reduce as the Reynolds number increases. Increase in Reynolds number and Schmidt number, increases the mass transfer coefficient of alumina nanofluid. Generally, comparison is made with other work and an appreciable trend is observed.
