Reactions are favorable when they result in a decrease in enthalpy and an increase in entropy of the system. When both of these conditions are met, thereaction occurs naturally. ... In order for a reaction to be non spontaneous, it must be endothermic, accompanied by a decrease in entropy, or both.
