Magnitudes of linear polarization in the UBVRI bands have been measured for about 30 background stars in the direction of the Chamaeleon I dark cloud. In addition, high-resolution spectroscopic observations in the wavelength ranges of the atomic species Ca II and Ca I and of the molecular species CH and CH+ have been performed towards the highly reddened and early-type stars selected fromthe polarimetry sample. The data have been used to study the magnetic-field structure, the relation between polarization and extinction, and the relation between molecular abundances and polarization properties in the cloud. In this contribution we present some of the results.
