The mass and heat transfer in hybrid magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) nanofluids is controlled by an autocatalytic chemical mechanism, which is the subject of the current study's thorough analysis. The focus of the work is on the nanolayers at interfaces, which link nanoparticles with the supporting fluids and enable coupled mass and heat transfer phenomena.To further investigate its effects, a uniform transverse magnetic field is added to the study.By using similarity methods, the governing nonlinear coupled partial differential equation that describes this sophisticated system is converted into a collection of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Two numerical approaches( Bvp4c) and the Shooting method, are used to solve the ODEs in order to get precise answers and do a comparison study. One interesting finding about the improvement of thermal performance is that a rise in nanolayer thickness (between 1 and 4) considerably adds to the enhancement. Additionally, it is discovered that improvements in the chemical reaction parameter, which ranges from 0.15 to 0.27, cause the Sherwood number to rise.It is noteworthy that the results of this study add to a better understanding of the complex interactions between magnetohydrodynamics, chemical processes, and nanofluid dynamics. The numerical techniques used highlight the significance of accurate mathematical modeling in illuminating the complexity of such systems. In addition to strengthening the theoretical foundation, this study offers useful information that could have an impact on heat transfer and nanofluid technology applications.
