In Chemical Science, chemical, biological, pharmaceutical properties of molecular structure are essential for drug design. These properties can be studied by topological index calculation. In this study, we obtain some topological properties of molecular structures of chloroquine, hydroxychloroquine and remdesivir. We determine some Revan polynomials for these three chemical antiviral agents. The results obtained can be helpful in finding new drug and vaccine for the treatment of COVID-19.
