We report the discovery that a flow of CO2, N2 or He can sufficiently reduce the spin-spin interactions of specific stable carbon centered radicals by displacing the molecular oxygen in the atmosphere enabling their detection via electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR). This finding unlike other reported effects on carbon radicals occurs under STP conditions and is reversible.
