Regioselective hydroarylation of alkynes to make ortho-, para-, and meta- products

(—One chemically relevant reaction is alkyne hydroarylation, or the addition of an alkyne to an arene to form aryl-substituted arenes. However, most routes for this reaction end up with a mixture of ortho- and para-substituted products.
