A boundary layer analysis is presented for the warm, laminar nanoliquid flow to a melting surface moving parallel to a uniform free stream. The resulting system of non-linear ordinary differential equations is solved numerically using Runge-Kutta method with shooting techniques. Numerical results are obtained for the velocity, temperature and concentration distributions, as well as the friction factor, local Nusselt number and local Sherwood number for several values of the parameters, namely
