Here is a newbie approach:

In[20]:=
ones = Most[ToExpression /@
Characters[StringTake[
ToString[BaseForm[212,
2]], StringPosition[
ToString[BaseForm[
212, 2]], "\n"][[1,
1]]]]]
Out[20]=
{1, 1, 0, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0}

In[82]:=
First[Last[Reap[
l = Length[ones];
For[i = 1, i <= l, i++,
If[ones[[i]] == 0,
Sow[ones[[i]]],
j = l - i; Sow[
2^HoldForm[Evaluate[
j]]]]]]]]
Out[82]=
{2^HoldForm[7],
2^HoldForm[6], 0,
2^HoldForm[4], 0,
2^HoldForm[2], 0, 0}

In[92]:=
\$Version
Out[92]=
"5.2 for Mac OS X (64 bit) \
(June 20, 2005)"
