**Abstract:**

This paper builds upon the Caffarelli-Kohn-Nirenberg (CKN) weighted interpolation inequalities, which are fundamental tools in partial differential equations (PDEs) and geometric analysis for establishing relationships between functions and their gradients when power weights are involved. Our work broadens the scope of these inequalities by generalizing them to encompass a broader class of radial weights and exponents. Additionally, we extend the application of these inequalities to the class $C^{\infty} ( \overline{\Omega})$ of smooth functions defined on bounded domains with Lipschitz boundaries. To achieve this generalization, we formulate a new integration by parts formula that accounts for more general weights, a wider range of exponents, and $C^{\infty}(\overline{\Omega})$ functions. The resulting generalized CKN-type inequalities offer explicit upper bounds on the optimal constants, independent of the domain's geometry, consistent with the scaling invariant nature of the inequalities.
