This thesis describes an attempt to simulate and characterize the self-assembly of the block-copolymer system polyethylene oxide (PEO) and polystyrene (PS) in the presence of Lithium Bistriflimide (Li[TFSI]) salt. The self-assembly is modeled using molecular dynamics (MD) with the MARTINI force-field. The MARTINI force-field employs a coarse-grained but explicit description for all system components. As such it is one of the first attempts to simulate this self-assembly process without resorting to a mean-field type description of the system at any level. A second focus of this thesis is devoted to the advantages and limitations of using MARTINI or simulating polymer systems. In this context a new MARTINI model for PEO is presented
