An analysis has been carried out to investigate the effects of thermophoresis and Brownian motion on hydromagnetic flow of a viscous, incompressible, electrically conducting nanofluid over a rotating porous disk. Two types of nanofluids such as copper-water nanofluid and silver-water nanofluid are considered. Governing equations of the problem are transformed into set of non-linear ordinary differential equations utilizing similarity transformations. The resulting non-linear differential equations are solved numerically by utilizing Nachtsheim-Swigert shooting scheme for satisfaction of asymptotic boundary conditions along with Runge - Kutta Fehlberg Method. The effects of different parameters on the velocity as well as on temperature are depicted graphically. Numerical values of radial and tangential skin friction coefficients and the nondimensional rate of heat transfer are shown in tabular form.
