You could just use the exponents.

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