thermodynamic and kinetic stabilityWatch
some reactions are thermodynamically favorable but dont occur due to kinetic stability but can it be that a reaction is thermodynamically unfavorable but is kinetically favorable?(because its kinetically unstable)
Kinetic stability refers to the rate of a reaction. A substance is kinetically stable if the activation energy barrier is too large to allow a reaction at any appreciable rate.
Thermodynamic stability refers to the universal entropy change making a reaction unfeasible. If a reaction is thermodynamically unfeasible it will not happen (under those conditions) regardless of the kinetics.
