The topological index of molecular graph is a number that attributed to the molecular graph and is valid than graph isomorphism, this number can reflect the properties of the molecules. In this study, Harari index in family phenacenes was calculated with some electronic and optical properties desired for a number of elements of the family, a model for predicting the electronic and optical properties by Harari index was prepared. To offer this model using mathematical software, electronic and optical properties of phenacenes calculated and compared with the data sources.
