1. Introduction and Preliminaries
be a simple molecular graph without directed and multiple edges and without loops, the vertex and edge sets of it are represented by
, respectively. In chemical graphs, the vertices correspond to the atoms of the molecule, and the edges represent to the chemical bonds. Note that hydrogen atoms are often omitted. If e is an edge of G, connecting the vertices u and v, then we write
and say “u and v are adjacent”. A connected graph is a graph such that there is a path between all pairs of vertices.
Mathematical chemistry is a branch of theoretical chemistry for discussion and prediction of the molecular structure using mathematical methods without necessarily referring to quantum mechanics. Chemical graph theory is a branch of mathematical chemistry which applies graph theory to mathematical modeling of chemical phenomena    . This theory had an important effect on the development of the chemical sciences.
In mathematical chemistry, numbers encoding certain structural features of organic molecules and derived from the corresponding molecular graph, are called graph invariants or more commonly topological indices.
Among topological descriptors, connectivity indices are very important and they have a prominent role in chemistry. One of the best known and widely used is the connectivity index, introduced in 1975 by Milan Randić  , who has shown this index to reflect molecular branching.
denotes G degree of vertex u. One of the important classes of connectivity indices is Sanskruti index
defined as 
Here our notation is standard and mainly taken from standard books of chemical graph theory    .
2. Main Results and Discussions
In this section, we compute the Sanskruti index
for circumcoronene series of benzenoid. The circumcoronene series of benzenoid is family of molecular graph, which consist several copy of benzene
on circumference. The first terms of this series are
, see Figure 1 and Figure 2 where they are shown, also for more study and historical details of this benze- noid molecular graphs see the paper series  -  .
At first, consider the circumcoronene series of benzenoid
for all integer number
. From the structure of
(Figure 2) and references  -  , one can see that the number of vertices/atoms in this benzenoid molecular

graph is equal to
and the number of edges/bonds is equal to
. Because, the number of vertices/
atoms as degrees 2 and 3 are equal to
and in circumco- ronene series of benzenoid molecule, there are two partitions
of vertices. These partitions imply that there are three partitions
of edges set of molecule
with size 6,
, respectively. Clearly, we mark the members of
by red, green and black color in Figure 2.
From Figure 2, one can see that the summation of degrees of vertices of molecule benzenoid
are in four types, as follow:
So, the Sanskruti index for circumcoronene series of benzenoid
In this paper, we discuss the Sanskruti index. We consider the molecular graph “circumcoronene series of benzenoid” and we compute its Sanskruti index.
