A layer rigidity (LR) model has been developed to account quantitatively for the composition dependence of the c-axis lattice expansion of a wide variety of ternary layered intercalation compounds including those derived from graphite, layer dichalcogenide and silicate clay hosts. The model includes for the first time the effects of layer deformations. Using the LR model, we extract rigidity parameters which increase in magnitude with the stiffness of the host layers. The LR model provides the first quantitative explanation for 1D non-Vegards law behavior in a 2D solid solution.
