[Cu(bpea)Cl]ClO4 (1) and a new copper(II) complex [Cu(bpma)(Ph-COO)(H2O)]ClO4 (2) [bpea = N,N-bis(2-pyridylmethyl)ethylamine; bpma = N,N-bis(2-pyridylmethyl)methylamine] have been synthesized. Complex 2 was crystallized in monoclinic space group P21/c with unit cell parameters a = 16.460(6) Å, b = 11.222(4) Å, c = 12.522(5) Å, and β = 97.985(6)°. Interactions of the complexes with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) have been investigated by UV absorption, fluorescence, and cyclic voltammetry; thus, modes of CT-DNA binding for the complexes have been proposed. Furthermore, DNA cleavage activities by the complexes were performed in the absence of any external agents. The influence of complex concentration or reaction time on the DNA cleavage was studied.
