In this paper, a new approach for studying the practical stability and boundedness with respect to a manifold of the solutions of a class of fractional differential equations is applied. The technique is based on the recently defined ``fractional-like derivative'' of Lyapunov-type functions. Sufficient conditions using vector Lyapunov functions are established. Examples are also presented to illustrate the theory.
