The transport equations incorporate Brownian motion and thermophoresis. The effects of velocity slip and temperature and concentration convective boundary conditions due to non-linear permeable stretching/shrinking is acquiescent controlled, which make our work a novel from the previous investigations and physically more realistic.
Influence of the thermophoresis parameter (Nt) is demonstrated in Figure 10 which depicts that, with increasing values of Nt, the temperature distribution increases and is maximum at the lower disk but falls rapidly towards the upper disk.
However, factors such as convection induced by electrophoresis, particle driven natural convection, thermophoresis, and others are still not considered but need to be encountered for better estimation of the effective thermal conductivity.
They have observed that the pressure rise decreases with the increase in thermophoresis number.
Here, [??], [[??].sub.p], and [[??].sub.t] are the vectors of plasma velocity, particle velocity, and thermophoresis force, respectively.
The increase of [[phi].sup.*] results in a combination of Brownian motion and thermophoresis diffusion within the nanofluid layer and thus destabilizes the system.

This attracted Makinde and Animasaun [8, 9] to focus on the case of quartic autocatalysis kind of chemical reaction in the flow of an electrically conducting nanofluid containing gyrotactic-microorganism over an upper horizontal surface of a paraboloid of revolution in the presence and absence of thermophoresis and Brownian motion.
