By making use of the fractional differential operator Ωzλ due to Owa and Srivastava, a class of analytic functions λ(α,ρ)(0ρ1,0λ<1,|α|<π/2) is introduced. The sharp bound for the nonlinear functional |a2a4a32| is found. Several basic properties such as inclusion, subordination, integral transform, Hadamard product are also studied.
