Molecular dynamics simulations for polar Kihara fluids are reported for linear models of different lengths at several dipole and quadrupole values and at three different thermodynamic states. Two of these states are close to the vapor-liquid equilibrium curve and the third one is at the same density as the first and at the same temperature as the second. Self-correlation functions and translational and orientational times are calculated and analyzed. Transport properties, diffusion, thermal conductivity, and shear viscosity are also reported and discussed in terms of multipolar forces. Correlation terms are used to calculate band broadening in different kinds of molecular spectra. Finally, it is shown how it is possible to discriminate between two models of acetonitrile that fit equilibrium properties equally well by using dynamic properties.
