Dendrimers are highly branched organic macromolecules with successive layers or generations of branch units surrounding a central core (Ashrafi and Mirzargar, 2008 [3]; Chen et al., 2014 [7]; Klajnert and Bryszewska, 2001 [26]; Yamamoto et al., 2002 [36]). These are key molecules in nanotechnology and can be put to good use. Topological indices are numbers associated with molecular graphs for the purpose of allowing quantitative structure-activity/property/toxicity relationships. These topological indices correlate certain physico-chemical properties like boiling point, stability, strain energy etc of chemical compounds. In this paper, we determine hyper-Zagreb index, first multiple Zagreb index, second multiple Zagreb index and Zagreb polynomials for some nanostar dendrimers.
