Combined heat and mass transfer of a viscous fluid along a semi-infinite vertical plate with large suction is studied analytically. Perturbation technique is used as main tool for the analytical approach. Viscous fluid behavior of heat and mass transfer over a vertical plate with large suction has been considered and its similarity equations have been obtained. Similarity equations of the corresponding momentum, temperature and concentration equations are derived by employing the usual similarity technique. The dimensionless similarity equations for momentum, temperature and concentration equation solved analytically by perturbation technique. The obtained numerical values of fluid velocity, temperature and concentration are drawn in figures. The results are discussed in detailed with the help of graphs to observe the effects of various parameters on the flow variables. Lastly, the important findings are concluded here
