Rhodamine dyes are widely used as fluorescent probes owing to their high absorption coefficient and broad fluorescence in the visible region of electromagnetic spectrum, high fluorescence quantum yield and photostability. A great interest in the development of new synthetic procedures for preparation of Rhodamine derivatives has arisen in recent years because for most applications the probe must be covalently linked to another (bio)molecule or surface. In this critical review the strategies for…

This work has developed a highly efficient, versatile synthetic route to developing chemically more stable reduced xanthene fluorophores, based on fluorescein, rhodol, and rhodamine via continuous Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling.

A General Strategy for Development of Near-Infrared Fluorescent Probes for Bioimaging.

The development of a unique class of NIR dyes via modifying the rhodol scaffold with fused tetrahydroquinoxaline rings, which showed large Stokes shifts and high fluorescence quantum yields and excellent photostability in aqueous solutions is described.

Rhodamine-inspired far-red to near-infrared dyes and their application as fluorescence probes.

These dyes show fluorescence in the far-red to near-infrared region, while retaining the advantages of the original rhodamines, such as high fluorescence quantum yield, tolerance to photobleaching, good water solubility, and exhibit great potential for biological application.

Far-red to near infrared analyte-responsive fluorescent probes based on organic fluorophore platforms for fluorescence imaging.

This review highlights the advances in the development of far-red to NIR fluorescent probes since 2000, and the probes are classified according to their organic dye platforms into various categories, including cyanines, rhodamine analogues, BODIPYs, squaraines, and other types.

Novel rhodamine dye with large Stokes shifts by fusing the 1,4-diethylpiperazine moiety and its applications in fast detection of Cu2+

Rhodamine dyes were widely developed for designing probes due to their excellent photophysical properties and biocompatibility. However, traditional rhodamine dyes still bear major drawbacks of short

Reversible red fluorescent molecular switches.

The generalization of this concept, termed RESOLFT (reversible saturable optical fluorescent transitions), showed that the use of ultrafast laser pulses can be avoided if photochromic fluorescent labels are used for the fluorescence switching, and enables imaging and writing on the nanoscale with ultralow intensities of light.
