The three-dimensional flow of Water based Graphene Oxide (GO-W) and Ethylene Glycol based Graphene Oxide (GO-EG) nanofluids amongst the binary upright and parallel plates is considered. The unsteady movement of the nanofluid is associated with the porous medium and the unbroken magnetic field is executed in the perpendicular track of the flow field. The basic governing equations have been altered using the Von Karman transformation, including the natural convection in the downward direction. The solution for the modeled problem has been attained by means of Optimal Homotopy Analysis Method (OHAM). The influence of the physical parameters on the momentum boundary layer, pressure and temperature fields is mainly focused. Moreover, the comparison of the GO-W and GO-EG nanofluids under the impact of physical constraints have been analyzed graphically and numerically. The imperative physical constraints of the drag force and heat transfer rate have been computed and conferred. The consequences have been validated using the error analysis and the obtained outcomes have been shown and discussed.
