        An exact analysis of  unsteady flow past an uniformly accelerated infinite vertical plate with uniform heat flux in the presence of homogeneous chemical reaction of first order has been studied. The temperature from the plate to the fluid is raised at constant rate and the concentration level near the plate is also raised to . The dimensionless governing equations are solved using Laplace-transform technique. The velocity, temperature  and concentration fields are studied for different physical parameters like chemical reaction parameter, thermal Grashof number, mass Grashof number, Schmidt number and time. It was observed that the velocity increases with increasing values of thermal Grashof number or mass Grashof number. It was also observed that the velocity increases with decreasing values of the chemical reaction parameter.
