Scientific Number Format on Frame

Dear all,
 I would like to plot my data with the option Frame->True and use a
scientific number format for the x-axis.
This is what I have got:

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

ListLogLinearPlot[data, Frame -> True,
 FrameTicks -> {Table[{10^-n,
     ScientificForm[1.*10^(-n), NumberFormat -> (10^#3 &)]}, {n, 6}],
   Automatic}, PlotRange -> {0, 100}]

However, I would like to have the numbers only on the bottom x-axis. I
cannot do it without messing up the number format.
Any help?

Thanks, L
