General formulas are obtained for the vertex Padmakar-Ivan index (PIv) of tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) dendrimer, whereby TTF units we are employed as branching centers. The PIv index is a Wiener-Szeged-like index developed very recently. This topological index is defined as the summation of all sums of nu(e) and nv(e), over all edges of connected graph G.
