the maximum work is equal to the gibbs free energy. Gibbs basically indicates how much "free" energy there is to do work.

When a system changes from a well-defined initial state to a well-defined final state, the Gibbs free energy, ΔG, equals the work done/exchanged by the system with its surroundings, minus the work of the pressure forces.

The Gibbs free energy of a reversible reaction is equal to the max work that can be done at const. temperature and pressure
