are esters more or less dense than water?
- AaronLv 49 years agoFavorite Answer
There is nothing about esters that make it inherently more or less dense than water. It depends entirely on what it is an ester of.
For example, ethyl acetate is less dense than water, but benzyl acetate is more dense.

Less dense. Look up the densities of several in a Handbook of Chemistry.
