Cattaneo–Christov with variable thermal relaxation time and entropy generation is the main concern of this study. The micropolar fluid with absorption of heat in the existence of mixed convection and partial slip is scrutinized. Two distinct nanoparticles, i.e., single-wall carbon nanotube and multi-wall carbon nanotube, are immerged in micropolar fluid to interrogate the feature of heat and mass transfer. The non-dimensional similarity transformation is utilized to transform the partial differential equations into nonlinear ordinary differential equations, and resulting coupled equations are solved numerically using bvp4c from MATLAB. The present results show the fabulous agreement with previous published results. The temperature field diminishes with larger thermal relaxation time parameter. Entropy generation profile is an increasing function of Brinkmann number, while Bejan number is a diminishing function. Further the solid volume fraction diminishes the velocity profile and enhances the temperature distribution and entropy generation.
