In this article, the ways where thermal radiation, besides other sources of heat, influence the magnetohydrodynamic stream of a Jeffery nanofluid across a widening sheet is investigated. To recover the accuracy of the nanofluid model, the effects of viscous indulgence, chemical response, Brownian motion, and thermophoresis have all been incorporated. The mathematical model of this system is first determined in PDEs format and then turned into ODEs format by similarity process. The numerical simulation of the ensuing nonlinear ODEs with subsequent periphery conditions is established by employing the Runge-Kutta fourth-order integration scheme with the shooting technique. The role of various stream considerations on stream, temperature, nanoparticle concentration, skin friction coefficient, Nusselt and Sherwood quantities are conveyed and explored in graphs and tables. In a limiting sense, the legitimacy of computational outcomes is assessed by comparing them to previously published data. The stream distribution quickens as the Deborah quantity accumulates, whereas the temperature and concentration profiles reflect the downward pattern.
