Casson nanofluid, unsteady flow over an isothermal vertical plate with Newtonian heating (NH) is investigated. Sodium alginate (base fluid)is taken as counter example of Casson fluid. MHD and porosity effects are considered. Effects of thermal radiation along with heat generation are examined. Sodium alginate with Silver, Titanium oxide, Copper and Aluminum oxide are added as nano particles. Initial value problem with physical boundary condition is solved by using Laplace transform method. Exact results are obtained for temperature and velocity fields. Skin-friction and Nusselt number are calculated. The obtained results are analyzed graphically for emerging flow parameters and discussed. It is bring into being that temperature and velocity profile are decreasing with increasing nano particles volume fraction.
