While the name is similar, according to the Star Fleet Medical Reference Manual (p.19), trititanium is not the same substance as tritanium. According to the reference book trititanium, symbol Tt, atomic weight 328, atomic number 128, was first discovered on Motherlode in 2184.
According to the novelization of Star Trek: The Motion Picture by Gene Roddenberry, the hull of the refitted USS Enterprise was made of trititanium.
