The fluorophores based on xanthene scaffolds, mainly containing rhodamine and fluorescein dyes, have attracted considerable interest from chemists due to their excellent photophysical properties such as high absorption coefficient, high fluorescence quantum yield, high photostability and relatively long wavelengths of fluorescence emission spectra.

A new rhodamine spiro scaffold with a six-membered reactive ring was developed by inserting a nitrogen atom in the known probe rhodamine B spiro thiohydrazide, which switched the recognition preference of the probe from Hg(2+) to Cu(2+). This probe is shown to be an efficient "turn-on" fluorescent chemodosimeter for Cu(2+) in a neutral aqueous medium.(More)
