An exact solution of heat and mass transform on flow past an oscillating infinite vertical plate with variable temperature through porous media has been presented. The dimensionless governing equations are solved by using Laplace transform technique. The velocity and temperature profiles are studied for different physical parameters like phase angle (ωt), thermal Grashof number (Gr), mass Grashof number (Gc), permeability parameter (K), Prandtl number (Pr), Schmidt number (Sc) and time t. It is observed that the velocity increases with decrease in ωt and increase in Gc, Gr, Pr, Sc, K and t.
