One obvious possibility (no doubt, there are much better ones):
In[1]:=
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^-6"}, {10^(-5), "10^-5"},
{10^(-4), "10^-4"}, {10^(-3), "10^-3"},
{10^(-2), "10^-2"}, {10^(-1), "10^-1"}},
Automatic}, PlotRange -> {0, 100}];

I.e., write your tick values as strings using the above correspondence.
