The effect of inclination of a channel on separation of a binary mixture of viscous incompressible thermally and electrically conducting Newtonian fluids in presence of a strong magnetic field perpendicular to the direction of flow is examined. The equations of motion, energy and concentration are solved analytically. It is found that the non-dimensional parameters viz, the baro-diffusion number, the Soret number, the product of Prandtl number and Eckert number, the Hartmann number, the electric parameter and the Magnetic Reynolds number affects the species separation significantly. The inclination of the channel has adverse effect on the rate of species separation while the intensity of the applied magnetic field enhanced the same.
