A massive of early drug tests implies that there exist strong inner relationships between the bio-medical and pharmacology characteristics of drugs and their molecular structures. The forgotten topological index was defined to be used in the analysis of drug molecular structures, which is quite helpful for pharmaceutical and medical scientists to grasp the biological and chemical characteristics of new drugs. Such tricks are popularly employed in developing countries where enough money is lacked to afford the relevant chemical reagents and equipment. In our article, by means of drug molecular structure analysis and edge dividing technology, we present the forgotten topological index of several widely used chemical structures which often appear in drug molecular graphs.
