Hydroxylated rhodamines, carbopyronines, silico- and germanorhodamines with absorption maxima in the range of 530–640 nm were prepared and applied in specific labeling of living cells. The direct and high-yielding entry to germa- and silaxanthones tolerates the presence of protected heteroatoms and may be considered for the syntheses of various sila- and germafluoresceins, as well as -rhodols. Application in stimulated emission depletion (STED) fluorescence microscopy revealed a resolution of 50–75 nm in one- and two-color imaging of vimentin-HaloTag fused protein and native tubulin. The established structure–property relationships allow for prediction of the spectral properties and the positions of spirolactone/zwitterion equilibria for the new analogues of rhodamines, carbo-, silico-, and germanorhodamines using simple additive schemes. Modular design for portable dyes: Hydroxylated rhodamines, carbopyronines, and Si- and Ge-rhodamines absorbing at 530–640 nm showed specific labeling of living cells and provided optical resolution of 50–75 nm in one- and two-color STED microscopy. The established structure–property relationships allow property predictions of the new dye analogues.
