Exact analytical solutions for fully-developed, steady-state laminar mixed convection with heat and mass transfer between vertical parallel plates are presented. The thermal boundary conditions are UWT or UHF while the concentration at each wall is assumed to be uniform but not necessarily the same. The solution for the UWT case depends on a single parameter which combines the effects of thermal and solutal buoyancy. In the UHF case it depends on three independent parameters, the ratio of the thermal Grashof number to the Reynolds number, the ratio of the solutal Grashof number to the Reynolds number, and the wall heat flux ratio.
