This investigation explored the significances of heterogeneous and homogeneous reactions on magneto hydrodynamic Maxell fluid flow induced by radially stretching disks under influence of buoyancy driven force. The steady state system is examined for the specific case in which the coefficient of diffusion of the reactants and auto catalytic agent are identical. The mathematical formulation for present flow problem is developed by using flow assumptions. The analytical solution for formulated flow problem is determined analytically by using homotopy analysis method (HAM) by using MATHEMATICA software. It is noticed that presence of Deborah number and thermal Biot number enhances the temperature profile. The homogeneous and heterogeneous parameter and Deborah number decays the concentration profile effectively. Further, an improved concentration distribution is noted for Archimedes number.
