The heat and mass transfer of a magnetohydrodynamic micropolar Carreau nanofluid on a stretching sheet has been analyzed. An internal heating, thermal radiation and viscous dissipation effects are also incorporated. The system of the governing partial differential equations is converted into the ordinary differential equations by invoking the similarity transformation. The resulting ordinary differential equations are then solved by the well known shooting technique. The impact of pertinent physical parameters on the velocity, angular velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are analyzed graphically. The dimensionless velocity is enhanced for the Weissenberg number and the power law index while reverse situation is studied in the thermal and the concentration profile.
