The Gamow-Teller transition of 46Cr to the N Z odd-odd nucleus 46V has been observed for the first time. By means of β-γ coincidence measurements, a γ-ray peak at 993 keV corresponding to the decay of the 1+1 state in 46V was observed. The branching ratio of the decay to this state was found to be bGT 0.25 0.050. The half-life of 46Cr was measured to be T1/2 240 140 ms. The transition strength was determined to be B(GT) 0.64 0.20. This result was compared with theoretical calculations.
