Here, Darcy–Forchheimer flow of dissipating SWCNT and MWCNT nanofluids induced by rotation of disk with homogeneous–heterogeneous reactions and convective boundary condition is examined. Xue model of nanofluid is implemented in mathematical modeling. The resulting problems are computed for convergent optimal series solutions. Graphical results have been presented for physical quantities. Our findings indicate that skin friction coefficients and local Nusselt number are enhanced for larger values of nanoparticle volume fraction.
