With the use of radiation, magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), chemical reactions, Brownian motion, and thermophoresis effects, this work aims to explore the heat and mass transfer of a chemically Jeffrey's nano-fluid flow over an accelerated stretched sheet. The flow model, which includes the distributions of momentum, temperature, and concentration, is built using the boundary layer approximation. The numerical values of the model's flow characteristics were then determined using an explicit finite difference method, and programming in Compaq Visual Fortran 6.6.a was created to simulate the fluid flow system. After a stability test, the results are plotted using the graphics program tecplot-9. The outcomes then show that the various dimensionless parameters considerably influence the fluid flow, temperature, and concentration distributions.  In this observation, initial boundary conditions were employed as U=T=C=0 and for \(\Delta\)t=0.005, \(\Delta\)X=0.50 and \(\Delta\)Y=0.50, then we exhibited the convergence criteria Sc\(\ge\) 0.24 and Le\(\ge\)0.40. In this article, other intriguing parameters have also been examined for the streams and isotherms.
