Electrochemical deposition (ECD) in radio frequency (RF)-irradiated ZnSO4 solutions is similar to that in solutions prepared from nanoparticles doped (NPD) water and both are very different from that in control (RO water) solutions. It was found that RF and doping treatments have dramatic effects on the deposition morphologies from microns to centimeters. Here we examine the idea that the observations resulted from long range order induced by the treatments. We reason that the long range order is mediated by the formation of network of nanobubbles (and nanoparticles for the NPD water) with a non random organization, and propose that the network is the outcome of bubble-bubble exchange interactions, resulted from water order around the bubbles. To further test the idea of induced long range order we present preliminary results of Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC) experiments of mixing of NPD solutions with control solutions, and of optical activity of the NPD water.
