Original scientific paper 1 In this study, heat and mass transfer characteristic of unsteady nanofluid flow between parallel plates is investigated. The important effect of Brownian motion and thermophoresis has been included in the model of nanofluid. The governing equations are solved via differential transformation method. The validity of this method was verified by comparison previous work which is done for viscous fluid. The analytical investigation

The results indicate that skin friction coefficient has direct relationship with Hartmann number and squeeze number. Also it can be found that Nusselt number increases with increase of Hartmann number, Eckert number, and Schmidt number but it is decreases with augment of squeeze number.
