Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are biopolymers, which are stored inside cells as energy storage materials by various microorganisms. PHAs are plastic materials that have a positive environmental impact when compared to regular plastics in terms of production methods and recyclabillity. In addition, PHAs are characterized by biocompatibility, biodegradability and thus have a wide range of applications such as biomedicine, surgery, etc. The most common PHAs are Polyhydroxybutyrate, Polyhydroxyvalerate, and copolymer. In this paper, we calculate the domination topological indices of these polymers; also, we discuss the quantitative structure property relationships (QSPR) analysis of these domination topological indices. Further, we show that the characteristics have a good correlation with the physico-chemical characteristics of polymers.
Keywords: polyhydroxybutyrate, polyhydroxyvalerate, domination topological indices, domination degree, QSPR analysis.
