enthalpy is the amount of heat that is released or absorbed in a reaction whereas entropy is the degree of disorder. Generally, it takes energy to go from more disordered to less disordered, and energy is released when you go from less disorder to more disorder. Enthalpy and entropy are related in the equation deltaG= deltaH-T*deltaS.
Enthalpy is the total amount of energy absorbed or released in a chemical reaction. It's made up of two components: one of them is usable energy that is stored in the chemical bonds of whatever molecule is formed (which is called free energy - G), entropy is the energy that is released and is unusable.
