%X Soret and Dufour effects on MHD flow of Williamson fluid between two rotating disks are examined. Impacts of stratification, viscous dissipation and activation energy are also considered. Bejan number and entropy generation for stratified flow is discussed. The governing PDE's are converted into ODE's by using Von Kármán transformations. Convergent solution of complicated ODE's is found by homotopic procedure. The results of physical quantities are discussed through plots and numerical values. It is noted that axial and radial velocities are more for greater Weissenberg number. Temperature and concentration profiles are decreasing functions of thermal and solutal stratification parameters respectively. Entropy and Bejan number show the opposite trends for higher Weissenberg number and Brinkman number.
