Sorry for the late reply but I've been looking around for the specific reaction with no results.  Gosh my thermodynamics is rusty but this is an endothermic reaction...
dG=dH-TdS... so I'm thinking the entropy term dominates... I wonder if anyone could correct me on that.
I've got nothin'

Sandra is the resident expert on the reaction. I'll try to get her to post it again.
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
