This paper analyse the endoscopic effects of peristaltic nanofluid flow of Jeffrey six-constant fluidmodel in the presence of magnetohydrodynamics flow. The current problem is modeled in the cylindrical coordinate system and exact solutions are managed (where possible) under low Reynolds number and long wave length approximation. The influence of emerging parameters on temperature and velocity profile are discussed graphically. The velocity equation is solved analytically by utilizing the homotopy perturbation technique strongly, while the exact solutions are computed from temperature equation. The obtained expressions for velocity , concentration and temperature is sketched during graphs and the collision of assorted parameters is evaluate for transform peristaltic waves. The solution depend on thermophoresis number , local nanoparticles Grashof number , and Brownian motion number . The obtained expressions for the velocity, temperature, and nanoparticles concentration profiles are plotted and the impact of various physical parameters are investigated for different peristaltic waves.
