This article documents the hydro-magnetic, incompressible Jeffery-Hamel flow in convergent/divergent (CD) channels with stretchable walls. Although there seem to be several works on the subject in the available literature, only a few attempts have been made to work into mass and heat transfer analysis. Consequently, novelty of present study is to investigate the significance of Soret/Dufour. Joule heating, and chemical reaction effects on Jeffery-Hamel flow. The governing coupled system of PDEs showing the mathematical framework of the current physical problems is converted into ODEs through proper transformations. The numerical solution of the obtained couple of ODEs is simulated with the assistance of Mathematica-11 solver NDSolve. The computed outcomes depict that Lorentz force developed due to the magnetic field decays the fluid motion for both convergent and divergent channels. Furthermore, incorporating the heat source and Dufour effects yields a sustainable increase in temperature distribution, whereas the Soret number has reverse features on concentration. Furthermore, the numerical outcomes reflect the significant variation in Nusselt number against magnetic, radiation parameter and Soret number.
