This paper investigates the unsteady mixed convection flow of an incompressible electrically conducting nanofluid. The Cattaneo- Christov double diffusion with heat and mass transfer are taken into account. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations are converted into nonlinear ordinary differential equations by using suitable similarity transformations. These equations are solved analytically by a homotopy perturbation technique. The profiles of the velocity, the temperature, the induced magnetic field and the nanoparticles concentration are sketched with various parameters. The influences of these parameters are discussed in details
