Advances in modifying fluorescein and rhodamine fluorophores as fluorescent chemosensors

Author affiliations

Abstract

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. In this feature article, we overview the strategies in the development of fluorescent probes that are operating through the modification of the skeletons of fluorescein and rhodamine dyes, and the fluorescent behaviors of these probes toward specific analyte are discussed.
