Abstract: Due to the combinatorial nature of graphs they are used easily in pure sciences and social sciences. The dynamical arrangement of vertices and their associated edges make them flexible (like liquid) to attain the shape of any physical structure or phenomenon easily. In the field of ICT they are used to reflect distributed component and communication among them. Mathematical chemistry is another interesting domain of applied mathematics that endeavors to display the structure of compounds that are formed in result of chemical reactions. This area attracts the researchers due to its applications in theoretical and organic chemistry. It also inspires the mathematicians due to involvement of mathematical structures. Regular or irregular bonding ability of molecules and their formation of chemical compounds can be analyzed using atomic valences (vertex degrees). Pictorial representation of these compounds helps in identifying their properties by computing different graph invariants that is really considered as an application of graph theory. This paper reflects the work on topological indices such as

Computation of topological indices for large chemical structures becomes very challenging but still useful in depicting the structure and physico-chemical properties that are extremely important in reticular chemistry. Recently reticular Metal-organic frameworks MOFs are evolved as porous conductive solids with great applicability in fuel cells, batteries, capacitors, sensors and electronics. In MOFs covalent fibers of carbon atoms form mesh like crystals [1,2]. In reticular chemistry, the numerically representation of structural characteristics of molecules, are the topological indices, which are obtained by using the graphical methods. These indices play an important role in the area of mathematical chemistry and control theory, mainly in QSAR/QSPR investigations [3,4].

The networks that are topologically equivalent, although they exibit different labelings of distinct atoms but due to topological indices they are invariant. These indices describe the connections among the atoms and in this way they are basic invariants that show a relationship with biological activity and chemical reactivity. Topological study of a MOF means transforming the connectivity of any structure into a unique number representing an index of the metal-organic framework under consideration.

Wiener in his article [5], introduced the concept of topological index while he was studying the structural relationships to identify boiling points of paraffins. Many topological indices are used to reflect the structural arrangement of graphs. In general, they are classified into distance or degree-based topological indices along with these counting related indices of graphs have play a vital role in chemical characterization. Article [6–22] can give more deep insight as literature survey.

The physical structure of solid materials is significant for engineering applications. It depends on the arrangements of the atoms, ions, or molecules that becomes the reason for strength of solid materials. The connectivity pattern of ions or atoms in a solid and repetitive patterns in three dimensions is known as crystal structure and material is called crystalline solid or crystalline material. Due to different crystalline structure of a materials their performance and characteristics varies. The unit cell is the basic structure that explains the crystal structure and repetition of this unit cell forms the whole crystal. Some of the examples of crystalline materials are alloys, metals, and some ceramic materials. In this paper topological indices for the bismuth tri-iodide and lead chloride are determined by mapping their crystalline structures in the form of graphs.

Lead chloride is a precious halide stone that usually occurs in mineral cotunnite. The structure of lead chloride is orthorhombic dipyramidal. The diagram of a solitary unit of lead chloride is obtained from bismuth tri-iodide by joining an extra vertex to only one 2-degree vertex of every one of the 4-cycles.
