Pure as the driven salt: A straightforward chemoenzymatic synthesis and organocatalytic applications of a new family of enantiopure triazolium salts are demonstrated. The influence of the different structural design vectors is discussed, and a broad range of conversions and some degree of enantiopreference for all catalysts tested is observed.
