We have studied the transport properties of ordered and disordered doped metallic nanotubes. We have presented these properties in periodic chemically metallic nitrogen doped metallic nanotubes. Transport properties with long range correlation have been studied using the Green’s function formalism in the frame work of the tight binding approach with effective parameters. Resonant conduction behaviour and ballistic transport have been demonstrated for particular positions of the dopant. These doping patterns have been shown to preserve the Bloach like transport properties and then to avoid Anderson localisation. The conductance response was almost changed because one of the two conductance channels remains true for both armchair and chiral nanotubes. These result reproduce the electronic properties of periodic nitrogen doped graphene. The present result has been drawn for specific chemical substitution of carbon atoms by nitrogen. These remain qualitatively valid for other local modifications of the nanotube by other chemical species by covalent or noncovalent functionalization. The energy of the quasi bound state depend on the specific local modification. We have shown that both axial and screw periodicities gave rise to such a behaviour and that specific disorder preserve their ballistic transport in doped metallic carbon nanotube.
