Let =(,), and let QC2:[0,) be an even function. In this paper, we consider the exponential-type weights wρ(x)=|x|ρexp(Q(x)),  ρ>1/2,  x, and the orthonormal polynomials pn(wρ2;x) of degree n with respect to wρ(x). So, we obtain a certain differential equation of higher order with respect to pn(wρ2;x) and we estimate the higher-order derivatives of pn(wρ2;x) and the coefficients of the higher-order Hermite-Fejér interpolation polynomial based at the zeros of pn(wρ2;x).
