The rings considered in this article are commutative with identity which are not fields. Let R be a ring. A. Alilou, J. Amjadi and Sheikholeslami introduced and investigated a graph whose vertex set is the set of all nontrivial ideals of R and distinct vertices I, J are joined by an edge in this graph if and only if either ann(I)J = (0) or ann(J)I = (0). They called this graph as a new graph associated to a commutative ring.Their above mentioned work appeared in the Journal, Discrete Mathematics Algorithms and Applications. The aim of this article is to investigate the interplay between some graph- theoretic properties of the complement of a new graph associated to a commutative ring R and the ring -theoretic-properties of R.
