**ABSTRACT:** In this paper, we investigate several topological indices in honeycomb graphs: Randić connectivity index, sum-connectivity index, atom-bond connectivity index, geometric-arithmetic index, First and Second Zagreb indices and Zagreb polynomials. Formulas for computing the above topological descriptors in honeycomb graphs are given.

**INTRODUCTION: **In this paper, we only consider an undirected graph without loops and multiple edges. Let *G* be a graph, we denote *V (G)* and *E(G)* the vertex set and edge set of G, respectively. An edge uv is an (*s; t*)-edge if *d(u) *= *s* and *d(v) *= *t*. In chemical graph theory, the vertices of the graph correspond to the atoms of molecules and the edges correspond to chemical bonds. The Wiener index *W (G)* is defined as the sum of topological distances *d*(*u; v*) between any two atoms in the molecular graph, which is introduced by the chemist Harold Wiener ^{1}.

^{}

According to the above Zagreb indices, the First Zagreb polynomial *Zg _{1}(G; x)* and the Second Zagreb polynomial

*Zg*have been defined. They are defined as

_{2}(G; x)**Honeycomb Graph: **The *n*-honeycomb graph *Hn* was studied in ^{10}. It is the graph shown in **Fig. 1**, where mean of vertex is vertex of the hexagons and mean of edges are the sides of the hexagons.

**Definition 1: **For any integer. Let *P _{1}*;

*P*;…;

a honeycomb graph Hk. Formulas for computing the above topological descriptors in honeycomb graphs are given and such results of other types of chemical graphs.
