The stability of n-dimensional linear fractional differential systems with commensurate order 1<α<2 and the corresponding perturbed systems is investigated. By using the Laplace transform, the asymptotic expansion of the Mittag-Leffler function, and the Gronwall inequality, some conditions on stability and asymptotic stability are given.
