On the other hand, the photochemical properties of various xanthenic dyes, mainly rose bengal
(RB) and eosin (Eo), have been extensively studied due to their diverse applications that derive mainly from their large molar absorption coefficients in the visible region and their high quantum yields of singlet oxygen generation.
That is the case of cyclic anionic xanthene dyes with three aromatic rings in linear arrangement and an atom of oxygen in the central ring as, for example, Rose Bengal
(RB), erythrosin B (EB), eosin Y (EY), and fluorescein (FL) (Figure 1).
