The synthesis and characterization of a series of crown ether 'comb-branch' polymers is reported wherein - and -ring lithium binding units have been linked to a polyacrylate or polymethacrylate backbone via a simple ester link or a C6 or oxydiethylene chain. Preliminary data on glass transition temperature, Tg, and conductivity reveal a relative insensitivity of T~ to added lithium in the  series and higher conductivities in the -O 4 series
