The main purpose of this article is to investigate three-dimensional steady rotating flow of rate type fluid (Maxwell fluid) over an exponential stretching surface. The Maxwell fluid saturates the porous space via Darcy–Forchheimer relation. Flow caused by the exponential stretchable surface of sheet. Chemical reaction along with Arrhenius energy is considered at the surface. Energy expression is modeled subject to heat source/sink and radiation flux. Appropriate transformations leads to ordinary ones. Homotopy method is implemented for the series solutions. Pertinent parameters are discussed graphically. Special consideration is given to the engineering quantities such as Sherwood and Nusselt numbers and discussed numerically through tabular form. Temperature distribution enhances versus higher radiation and heat source/sink parameter while decays for larger Prandtl number. Furthermore, velocity shows decreasing trend through larger porosity and Deborah number.
