Isothermal reaction

What exactly is the difference between an isothermal reaction and a non isothermal reaction?

An isothermal process is a change of a system, in which the temperature remains constant: ΔT = 0. A non isothermal process is when the temperature is not constant.

Another thing to note is that isothermal reactions mean that the temperature is not changing/constant. This means that delta U (change in internal energy) is zero because internal energy depends on the temperature.

As the previous posts mention, isothermal means constant temperature. Similarly there is also the term isobaric, which means constant pressure.
