An analysis is presented for the problem of the effect of MHD on two-dimensional flow of micropolar fluid in a porous channel with high mass transfer. An extrusion of Bernoulli’s similarity transformation is used to reduce the governing partial differential equations to a set of non-linear coupled ordinary differential equations. By using quasilinearization technique, the non-linear ordinary differential equations are reduced to linear equations. The latter are solved for large mass transfer by using implicit finite difference method. Numerical results of velocity distribution of micropolar fluids are presented graphically for different flow parameters Reynolds number Re, micro-rotation/angular velocity N, microrotation boundary condition S, Magnetic Parameter M.
