A new type base, bisaknadinine, was isolated from Stephania Sasakii Hayata, and its structure was decided as (I) from spectral data, especially by the application of nuclear Overhauser effect and internuclear double resonance. The chemical oxidation of aknadinine (II) afforded bisaknadinine (I), thus the absolute configuration of (I), except the steric configuration concerning the mode of biphenyl linkage, was proved.
