6,6'-bis(hydroxymethyl)[1,1'-biphenyl]-2,2'-dicarboxylic acid

I was wondering that at optimum temperature can 6,6'-bis(hydroxymethyl)[1,1'-biphenyl]-2,2'-dicarboxylic acid show esterification reaction.

I know that the two phenyl groups aren't in the same plane so is esterification reaction still possible?

    $\begingroup$ What conditions do you intend to use for the esterification? Acid catalysed or with a coupling agent? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You are not going to get esterification with NaOH present! $\endgroup$
