data={{10^-6,72},{10^-5,60},{10^-4,45},
      {10^-3,31},{10^-2,33},{10^-1,32}};

Needs["Graphics`Graphics`"];

LogLinearListPlot[data,Ticks->{Table[
          {10^-n,ScientificForm[1.*10^(-n), 
              NumberFormat->(10^#3&)]},{n,6}],
        Automatic},PlotRange->{0,100}];

However, it is difficult to see the exponent on the labels.  You could just use
the exponents.

LogLinearListPlot[data,
    Ticks->{Table[{10^-n,-n},{n,6}],Automatic},
    PlotRange->{0,100}, AxesLabel->{10^x,None}];

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}]
