^^ this correct and then would imply that deltaU (change in internal energy is = w (work)) since q=0
An adiabatic process is one in which no heat is transferred between the reaction and the surroundings (i.e. q=0). This is not the same as an isothermal process, in which the change in temperature is 0. Simply because there is no change in temperature, this does not indicate that there was no heat transfer between the reaction and the surroundings.

I think that the change in enthalpy would also be zero for cases in which the pressure is constant since only at constant pressure is heat equal to the enthalpy.
