Using the matrix product formalism, we find exact ground states for two new spin-() and spin-() quantum chains. On a lattice of sites, these ground states have a total spin of , and hence have ferrimagnetic character. The novel point of this construction is that we construct a matrix product representation, not for a state which is invariant under rotation as has been hitherto considered, but for a state which transforms to other states under this symmetry operation. The method can be directly generalized to other symmetry groups.
