Abstract

This paper presents a knot theoretic approach to the study of molecular graphs. It provides examples of molecular knots and links as well as other topologically complex molecules. The paper discusses various topological problems and theorems which were motivated by questions in chemistry. Some of these results have direct applications to the analysis of molecular structures, while other results, though arising out of questions about chemistry, are purely topological in nature.
