Conformational properties of dipolar chains, and spatial and orientational intra-chain correlations in zero and infinitely strong external fields are investigated theoretically. A striking similarity and essential distinctions between the chains and polymer molecules are revealed and discussed. The main attention is given to the chain flexibility. The coil-globule phase transition in dipolar chains is predicted.
