A free convective flow of a viscous incompressible flow past an infinite vertical oscillating plate with variable temperature and uniform mass diffusion is presented here, taking into account the homogeneous chemical reaction of the first-order. The plate temperature is raised linearly with respect to time, and the concentration level near the plate is raised to Cw′ . An exact solution to the dimensionless governing equations has been obtained by the Laplace transform method, when the plate is oscillating harmonically in its own plane. The effects of velocity and concentration are studied for different parameters like phase angle, chemical reaction parameter, Schmidt number and time. It is observed that the velocity increases with the decrease of the phase angle ωt or a chemical reaction parameter.
