AB - The resistance distance ΩG(i,j) between vertices i and j of a connected (molecular) graph G is computed as the effective resistance between nodes i and j in thecorresponding network constructed from G by replacing each edge of G with a unitresistor. The conductance excess between any i and j of G is the difference between 1/ΩG(i,j) and the reciprocal of the distance between i and j. The global cyclicity index of G is defined as the sum of conductance excesses between all pairs of adjacentvertices. In this paper, by computing resistance distances between pairs of adjacentvertices in linear polyacenes, an explicit formula for the global cyclicity index of abenzenoid chain is obtained in terms of its number of hexagons.
