The radiative heat flux is assumed to follow Rosseland approximation. The governing equations of momentum, angular momentum, energy, and species equations are solved numerically using Runge-Kutta fourth order method with the shooting technique. The effects of various parameters on the velocity, microrotation, temperature and concentration field as well as skin friction coefficient, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are shown graphically and tabulated. It is observed that the micropolar fluid helps the reduction of drag forces and also acts as a cooling agent. It was found that the skin-friction coefficient, heat transfer rate, and mass transfer rate are decreased, and the gradient of angular velocity increases as the inverse Darcy number, porous medium inertia coefficient, or magnetic field parameter increase. Increases in the heat generation/absorption coefficient caused increases in the skin-friction coefficient and decrease the heat transfer rate. It was noticed that the increase in radiation parameter or Prandtl number caused a decrease in the skin-friction coefficient and an increase in the heat transfer rate. In addition, it was found that the increase in Schmidt number and chemical reaction caused a decrease in the skin-friction coefficient and an increase in the mass transfer rate.https://jcarme.sru.ac.ir/article_582_f28fea6af680f8db65460d2da0447628.pdf
