This paper addresses the effect of homogeneous-heterogeneous reaction on Williamson fluid model over a stretching cylinder. The boundary layer partial differential equations are converted into ordinary differential equation by using suitable transformations. The non-linear ordinary differential equations are solved by using implicit finite difference Keller box technique. The effects of several pertinent parameters on velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are deliberated graphically. The behavior of skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are examined through graphs.
