This paper investigated unsteady free convection flow between two parallel plates with mass diffusion. One of the plate are considered oscillating. Appropriate non-dimensional variables are used to reduce the dimensional governing equations along with imposed initial and boundary conditions. The exact solution for velocity, temperature and concentration profiles are obtained using the Laplace Transform technique. The graphical results of the solutions are presented to illustrate the behavior of the fluid flow with the influenced of Schmidt number, Prandtl number, oscillating parameter, Grashof and mass Grashof number. The corresponding expressions for skin friction, Nusselt number and Sherwood number are also calculated. It is observed that increasing Prandtl and Schmidt number will increased the Nusselt number but decreased the skin friction.
