Compositional variation of the lattice parameters of TlBX2-type (B = Ga or In and X = S or Se) mixed crystals with monoclinic structure were studied by X-ray diffraction technique. The lattice anisotropy (c/b) of these mixed crystals changes linearly with substitution of the atoms located both at the centers and the vertices of the corresponding BX4 tetrahedra. A brief survey of the important features of the effect of isomorphic atom substitution on the lattice anisotropy and the unit cell volume of TIBX2-type mixed crystals with layered structure was presented.
