Computation of Multiplicative Descriptors of Some Agricultural Pesticides

Received Date:17 February 2023, Accepted Date:11 August 2023, Published Date:04 December 2023


Objective: To examine various degree-based multiplicative descriptors of some agricultural pesticides. Methods: To compute the main results, the method of analytical techniques, degree counting method, edge and vertex partition method, and graphical-theoretical tools is used to evaluate the agricultural pesticides. Findings: Various degree-based multiplicative indices analytical expressions have been obtained. Novelty: Pesticides are combinations of chemicals or mixtures that are primarily used in agriculture and this study creates a simple and exact method of estimating and ranking the potentially hazardous chemicals. The relationship between the chemical compounds and their properties is determined by topological descriptors. The topological indices of agricultural pesticides are plotted and compared with each other.
