We extend the Montgomery identities for the Riemann-Liouville fractional integrals. We also use these Montgomery identities to establish some new integral inequalities. Finally, we develop some integral inequalities for the fractional integral using differentiable convex functions.
The inequality of Ostrowski  gives us an estimate for the deviation of the values of a smooth function from its mean value. More precisely, if is a differentiable function with bounded derivative, then for every . Moreover, the constant is the best possible.
If is differentiable on with the first derivative integrable on , then Montgomery identity holds where is the Peano kernel defined by Recently, several generalizations of the Ostrowski integral inequality are considered by many authors; for instance, covering the following concepts: functions of bounded variation, Lipschitzian, monotonic, absolutely continuous, and -times differentiable mappings with error estimates with some special means together with some numerical quadrature rules. For recent results and generalizations concerning Ostrowski’s inequality, we refer the reader to the recent papers [3–10].
In this paper, we extend the Montgomery identities for the Riemann-Liouville fractional integrals. We also use these Montgomery identities to establish some new integral inequalities of Ostrowski's type. Finally, we develop some integral inequalities for the fractional integral using differentiable convex functions. Later, we develop some integral inequalities for the fractional integral using differentiable convex functions. From our results, the weighted and the classical Ostrowski's inequalities can be deduced as some special cases.

Definition 2.1. The Riemann-Liouville fractional integral operator of order with is defined as
3. Main Results
In order to prove some of our results, by using a different method of proof, we give the following identities, which are proved in . Later, we will generalize the Montgomery identities in the next theorem.
Lemma 3.1. Let be a differentiable function on with and , then where is the fractional Peano kernel defined by
Proof. By definition of , we have Integrating by parts, we can state and similarly, Adding (3.4) and (3.5), we get If we add and subtract the integral to the right-hand side of the equation above, then we have Multiplying both sides by , we obtain and so This completes the proof.
Now, we extend Lemma 3.1 as follows.
Theorem 3.2. Let be a differentiable function on with , then the following identity holds: where is the fractional Peano kernel defined by for .
Theorem 3.4. Let be a differentiable on such that , where . If for every and , then the following inequality holds:
Theorem 3.6. Let be a differentiable convex function on and . Then for any , the following inequality holds:
Proof. Similarly to the proof of Lemma 3.1, we have Since is convex, then for any we have the following inequalities: If we multiply (3.21) by , and integrate on , we get and if we multiply (3.22) by and integrate on , we also get Finally, if we subtract (3.24) from (3.23) and use the representation (3.20) we deduce the desired inequality (3.19).
Corollary 3.7. Under the assumptions Theorem 3.6 with , one has
Remark 3.8. If we take in Corollary 3.7, we get
Theorem 3.9. Let be a differentiable convex function on and . Then for any , the following inequality holds:
Proof. Assume that and are finite. Since is convex on , then we have the following inequalities: If we multiply (3.28) by and integrate on , we have and if we multiply (3.29) by , and integrate on , we also have Finally, if we subtract (3.30) from (3.31) and use the representtation (3.20) we deduce the desired inequality (3.27).
Corollary 3.10. Under the assumptions Theorem 3.9 with , one
Remark 3.11. If we take in Corollary 3.10, we get
