Interfacial activity of proteins at the liquid-vapor interfaces was investigated. Proteins appear more similar than dissimilar on a weight/volume basis whereas molarity scaling reveals a 'Traube-rule' ordering by molecular weight. The findings suggest that adsorption is substantially driven by solution concentration rather than diversity in protein amphilicity. Results show that concentration scaling substantially alters perception of protein interfacial activity.
