Kinetics deals with the rate of a reaction and thermodynamics deals with whether the reaction is favorable or not. Kinetic stability basically occurs when the reactants react at a slower rate. The slower the reaction occurs, the greater the kinetic stability. Thermodynamic stability depends on whether or not the reaction is spontaneous. A thermodynamically stable reaction is one that essentially does not react.
