Present study is dedicated to investigate the water functionalized carbon nanotubes squeezing flow between two parallel discs. Moreover, we have considered MHD effects normal to the disks. In addition we have considered two kind of carbon nanotubes named: single wall carbon nanotubes and multiple wall carbon nanotubes with in the base fluid. Under this squeezing flow mechanism model has been constructed in the form of partial differential equation. Transformed ordinary differential equations

Comparison among the single wall carbon nanotubes and multiple wall carbon nanotubes are drawn for skin friction coefficient and local Nusselt number. Conclusion remarks are drawn under the observation of whole analysis.
