Under mode of ultrasonic vibration, the neutral octahedral mononuclear [trans-CuBr2(N ∩ N)2]·3H2O complex with N ∩ N = 2,2-dimethylpropane-1,3-diamine was obtained. The structure of the desired complex was characterized by UV–Vis. spectroscopy, FT-IR, EDX, MS, SEM, TG/DTA and CHN-analysis. The octahedral-structure of the desired Cu(II) complex was proven via XRD single-crystal diffraction and its molecular interactions were computed by Hirschfeld surface analysis. Alcohol (as solvent) and short ultrasonic vibration dose period played a critical role in sonochemistry synthesis of octahedral neutral trans-CuBr2(N ∩ N)2 complex instead of trigonal bipyramidal monocation [CuBr(N ∩ N)2]Br one. Due to the Jahn-Teller effect, the complex exhibited a trans bonds elongation along Br-Cu-Br axis originating a distorted-octahedral Cu(II), as revealed by the XRD measurements (Br-Cu = 3.04 Å). Therefore, the Solvatochromic behavior of the complex was successfully performed since the trans di-bromide ions are loosely coordinated to Cu(II) center, the change in complex solutions colors by using different solvents which can be detected even by naked-eye supported atypical Jahn-Teller elongation effect formation. TG/DTA and Flynn Wall Ozawa (FWO) isoconversional kinetic methods were applied for the complex to figure out the thermal behavior, kinetic of the ligands de-structured and estimate its Ea/α relation. The complex binding mode to the CT-DNA was examined by UV–vis. spectroscopic, melting curve, CV and viscosity tests. The complex exhibited very strong DNA binding via an intercalation mode of coordination with Kb = 6.5 × 105 value
