This study examines the problem of steady, MHD, mixed convection flow of an incompressible viscous fluid past a semi-infinite vertical permeable plate with slip condition at the boundary layer. The flow field is exposed to the influence of buoyancy, Ohmic heating and Soret effects. The governing equations include the continuity, linear momentum, energy and mass transfer equations which are solved analytically by using perturbation method. The results of this parametric study on the velocity, temperature and concentration distributions are shown graphically and the physical aspects of the problem are highlighted and discussed. The effect of shear stress, rate of heat and mass transfer coefficients at the channel walls are displayed in tables.
