The present study investigates magnetic, first-order chemical reaction, Soret and Dufour effects on electrically conducting micropolar fluid flow between two circular cylinders. The inner and outer surfaces of the annular cylinder are maintained at different constant wall temperature where the outer cylinder is rotating and inner cylinder remains stationary. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations are transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) using similarity transformations. The resulting equations are then solved for approximate analytical series solutions using homotopy analysis method (HAM). The effects of various parameters on the velocity, microrotation temperature and concentration are discussed and shown graphically.
