In-situ measurements of the electron spin resonance of [Na+y (CH)-y]x during electrochemical doping are reported. The susceptibility and the esr linewidth exhibit step-like increases, with hysteresis, as functions of the chemical potential. These magnetic data, when combined with electrochemical and structural results on the same system, imply a first order phase transition from soliton lattice to metal.
