Methods of preparing conducting polymers and the conductive polymers prepared therefrom are provided. The method includes a) combining a monomer-metal complex together with a manganese (II) halide to provide a monomer-manga nese complex, and b) combining the monomer-manganese complex together with a metal catalyst to provide the conductive polymer. Electronic devices can be made using the polymers prepared as described herein.
