In the field of chemical graph theory, topological indices are calculated based on the molecular graph of a chemical compound. Topological indices are used in the development of Quantitative structure Activity/Propoerty Relations. To study the physico-chemical properties of molecules most commonly used are the Zagreb indices. In this paper, we introduce reciprocals leap indices as a modified version of leap Zagreb indices. The exact values of reciprocals leap indices of some well-known classes of graphs are calculated. Lower and upper bounds on the reciprocals leap indices of graphs are established. The relationship between reciprocals leap indices and leap Zagreb indices are presented.
