In mathematical chemistry, a particular attention is given to degree-based graph invariant. The Zagreb
polynomial is one of the degree based polynomials considered in chemical graph theory. A dendrimer is
an artificially manufactured or synthesized molecule built up from branched units called monomers. In
this note, the first, second and third Zagreb polynomials of some nanostar dendrimers are determined.
