Benzene or benzenoid series of structures are among the most attractive chemical structures. Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are one of the complex families of benzenoids. PAH are everyday combustion products and implemented in many usages, especially in astrochemistry, as a candidate of interstellar species. In chemical graph theory, each chemical structure can be represented as a graph, where atoms alternated to vertices and edges become bonds. Resolvability parameters of a graph are the recent advanced topic in which the entire structure is shaped such a way to get each atom’s unique position. This article studies some resolvability parameters of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, such as metric dimension, edge metric dimension, and generalizations. Getting the entire structure into a novel shape obtained through resolvability parameters helps in understanding and working with the structure.
