Abstract

The C60·2S8 complex was prepared by reaction of buckminsterfullerene C60 with sulfur in trichloroethylene and its single-crystal X-ray structure was studied at room temperature. Crystals of this compound are monoclinic, space groupC 2/c, a=20.90(1),b=21.10(1),c=10.537(9) Å, β=111.29(7)°,Z=4,dcalc=1.89 g·cm−3. The crystal structure of the C60·2S8 complex consists of packed fullerene molecules that form hexagonal channels along thec axis with eight-membered crown-shaped S8 cyclic molecules inside the channels. The distances between the centers of neighboring fullerene molecules are 10.036(7), 10.636(7), and 10.537(9) Å. Each C60 molecule is linked to eight S8 molecules with ten shortened intermolecular contacts C...S 3.41(1)–3.52(2) Å. The average values of the C=C and C-C bond lengths are 1.32(3) and 1.47(3) Å, which attest to a significant degree of localization of electron density in the c60 molecule.
