The present analysis is performed to discuss the slip- flow of a rotating nanofluid over a stretching sheet. The two phase nanofluid model is used for the physical modelling of the system. The similarity transformations have been planned to reduce the partial differential equations into three coupled ordinary differential equations. These equations are then solved numerically using midpoint integration scheme along with Richardson extrapolation via Maple [26-28]. The dimensionless factors K and λ are responsible to control partial slip and rotation of the fluid. Effects of K , λ and particle volume fraction of nano particles on skin frictions, velocity and temperature fields have been tabularized, demonstrated graphically and discussed. In order to validate our numerical scheme, skin friction coefficients and local heat flux are computed in the absence of slip and rotation and they are found to be in very good agreement with the previously published literature.
