In the present article, the double-diffusive natural convection of a micropolar nanofluid over a linearly stretching sheet is discussed. The flow equations are transformed into ordinary differential equations using similarity transformations. The numerical solutions are computed using shooting technique and compared with the literature for the special case of pure fluid flow and found to be in good agreement. Graphical results are presented to illustrate the effects of various fluid flow parameters on velocity, heat transfer, nanoparticle volume fraction, salt concentration, Nusselt number, Sherwood number and skin friction coefficient for both assisting and opposing flows.
