A new method to synthesize fullerene and sulfur compounds, C60S16 and C70S16 compounds of about 1 mm length, has been developed. The C60S16 crystal is a C-centered monoclinic structure of a = 2.0874(1)nm, b = 2.1139(1)nm, c = 1.05690(6)nm and β = 111.9 degree. The C70S16 compound has a primitive monoclinic structure of a = 1.5271(2) nm, b = 1.49971(7) nm, c = 2.18024(9) nm and β = 109.791(1)degree. The crystalline structure of these compounds is constructed by fullerene and S8-rings. A very small amount of charge-transfer between fullerenes and sulfur rings are expected by first-principle calculation.
