Hello !

Here the way I found :

data = {{10^(-6), 72}, 
   {10^(-5), 60}, {10^(-4), 
    45}, {10^(-3), 31}, 
   {10^(-2), 33}, {10^(-1), 
<< "Graphics`Graphics`"
  Ticks -> {Table[{10^(-i), 
     {i, 1, 7}], Automatic}, 
  PlotRange -> {0, 100}]

I apologize up front for posting a seemingly FAQ...but I searched the
archives and did not find what I need.

How can I format the axis of a LogLinearListPlot to display tick
labels as scientific notation without the "1 x " portion?  In other
words, I'd just like to display the base 10 and superscript exponent. 
Here is an example of a plot whose x-axis I'd like to label in this

data = {{10^-6,72},{10^-5,60},{10^-4,45},{10^-3,31},{10^-2,33},{10^-1,32}}
<< Graphics`Graphics`
PlotRange->{0, 100}]

Many thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,
