In this talk I will give an introduction about how chemistry logic can be used to find new topological semimetals. After introducing how new Dirac semimetals can be found, I will show how we can use solid state chemistry to tune the electronic structure to the desired needs, form shifting Dirac cones to the Fermi level, to breaking time reversal symmetry in different ways, and thus split degeneracies. This way a multitude of different non trivial states is accessible.
