I am a little lost in naming this compound.

I think it would be something like 2 bromo 4 methylene pentene??

Is that close?

It is a five carbon chain, so pentane, with a Br on carbon two, a methylene substituent on carbon 4, and a alkene on carbon 1.

    $\begingroup$ Perhaps you could edit this to show how it was arrived at? Whilst it may be the correct answer, its not really helping the OP learn anything, and certain not of help to anyone else looking to follow and apply this to similar molecules. $\endgroup$
