This paper is devoted to prove the existence of extremal solutions for multi-term nonlinear fractional differential equations with nonlinear boundary conditions. The fractional derivative is of Caputo type and the inhomogeneous term depends on the fractional derivatives of lower orders. By establishing a new comparison theorem and applying the monotone iterative technique, we show the existence of extremal solutions. The method is a constructive method that yields monotone sequences that converge to the extremal solutions. As an application, some examples are presented to illustrate the main results.
