Assunto:  Is this construction correct?

yes it's fine


the writer could have said:

atoms cannot pack together as densely

atoms cannot pack as densely together


but it's a question of style, and perhaps the phrase he has used is most clear because it does not allow any ambiguity with the concept "density" (which can also be used derogatively in English as an assessment of a person's mental capacity)


hope that is of some use
