X-ray flares from M-dwarf stars have been known to strip the atmospheres of planets, thus decreasing the likelihood that these planets could harbor life. But what about X-ray flares produced by stars that trace the Sun’s history? Pre-main sequence solar-mass stars, known as T-Tauri stars, are known to be X-ray bright and variable. However, there has been a limited amount of research exploring how X-ray flares produced by T-Tauri stars impact chemistry in the surrounding protoplanetary disk. In this talk, I will discuss a range of theoretical and observational evidence that X-ray flares drive chemical variability in planet forming disks.
