We investigate the existence and uniqueness of solutions to the nonlocal boundary value problem for nonlinear impulsive fractional differential equations of order . By using some well-known fixed point theorems, sufficient conditions for the existence of solutions are established. Some examples are presented to illustrate the main results.
