The promising early beginnings of the theoretical development of the Poincaré–Hopf relation, abandoned in the early 1980s, have inspired the recent creation of quantum topology phase diagrams to predict new isomer topologies. Alternative uses of the Poincaré–Hopf and Euler–Poincaré relations, for example, for molecular recognition and phase transitions in solids, respectively, are discussed. A perspective is given and it is demonstrated that within the quantum topology framework, new theory can be created to link with traditional chemical ideas.
