First-principles calculations based on density functional theory were carried out to investigate the structural and electronic properties of Pt substitution-doped boron nitride (BN) nanotubes. The electronic and structural properties were studied for substituted Pt in the boron and the nitrogen sites of the (BN) nanotube. The band gap significantly diminishes to 2.095 eV for Pt doping at the B site while the band gap diminishes to 2.231 eV for Pt doping at the N site. The band density increases in both the valence band and the conduction band after doping. The effects of the hardness and softness group 17 (halogen elements) were calculated by density functional theory (DFT).
